Stay is proud to provide a wide range of housing and person-centred services for homeless and vulnerable people in the Telford & Wrekin Borough.
Read more about our services below.
Stay has over 70 units of accommodation. These are predominately for young people, with support provided through a team of Intensive Housing Coaches that help with setting up home and tenancy, budgeting, improving health and well-being and accessing specialist support services. Individuals tend to reside in our accommodation for around two years and are supported to move on into fully independent living when the time is right.
As part of the Rough Sleeper Task Force partnership with voluntary and statutory partners, Stay provides a 24/7 on call outreach service to deliver detached street work where we actively seek individuals sleeping rough and support them into emergency accommodation. Individual needs are assessed, and support is provided to engage with services that tackle the underlying issues that have caused their homelessness.
As part of the Thrive Partnership with Maninplace and YMCA Telford and Wrekin, Stay leads on a Floating Support contract where over 450 hours of support are provided within the community.
The Blue Light Project
Stay Mindful - Mental Health support
Stay, together with Telford Mind, deliver the ‘Stay Mindful’ project where individuals in our accommodation have access to a 1-2-1 counselling and listening service. This is open to all individuals accessing Stay services who wish to work through previous trauma to support improved health and well-being.
Making a difference and having a positive impact on the lives of homeless and vulnerable people in the Telford & Wrekin Borough is why Stay exists. Here are some comments from our beneficiaries.
