Why Landlords Choose Ready4Home

We are a Not-for-Profit organisation based in Preston.  We currently have an Information Sharing Agreement with Organisations for Greater Manchester and the Lancashire area.  Our main referral pathway comes from NHS, Veteran agencies such as Walking With The Wounded, NPS, Approved Premises, local authorities, and other referring agencies.

There are many organisations and charities established to support homeless people. There is also a well-established hostel provision. However, there is a lack of “move on accommodation” available to enable people living in Hostels make the transition into independent living  

We have a Board of Directors with extensive knowledge of the clients we wish to assist. Including qualified individuals who carry out the Risk Assessments and score the referrals for suitability.  

We offer transport on the day of induction.  We then take our clients to their new home where they receive a Welcome Pack including bedding, towels, a food pack, personal hygiene and household cleaning products.  Accommodation is fully furnished and well appointed. We offer 2 hours one to one support weekly for a period of up to 2 years.  During this time, we are constantly working towards a Move on Plan enabling complete independence.
