Supported Accommodation

Our accommodation support service

King’s Arms Project’s Supported Accommodation Service offers short-term accommodation, a high level of autonomy and independence, and tenancy support for a wide variety of people who have experienced homelessness and are moving toward independent living. We tailor support towards each residents’ needs and aspirations, offering a holistic approach, ensuring residents have the best opportunity to develop and achieve their aims in an encouraging, progressive environment. We work with people to see them move into their own independent accommodation,  gain employment, and to find solutions for their specific needs which will bring them out of destitution and into a hope-filled future.

What the team say...

It's been a privilege to see many of our clients with no recourse to public funds go from literally having nothing to be in secure housing with an income, a hope and a future.

Outreach Team

The thing I love most about working for KAP is the team that I am in and how everyone looks out for each other, I love that we can pray together as a team when we feel like we have exhausted all visible options and we then see answers.

I have worked closely with one resident who has really struggled with both his physical and mental health since the first day I met him but has recently been prescribed the correct medication finally. He said he  'felt the most hope he had felt in over a year about his future' and was making jokes which he hadn't done before and looked like a new man!

Accommodation Team

Many of those I and my team work with have been through serious trauma both in their home countries and in the UK. Being able to bring hope to them by providing practical and emotional support is a huge privilege. 

Welcoming a new family from Syria has been wonderful. As their support worker I went to meet them at the airport. Journeying with them as they adjust to life in the UK has been an absolute joy.

Refugee and Migrant Services Team

It is such an amazing thing to be part of this team and make a real difference in people's lives.  It is really rewarding when we support vulnerable clients and see their difficult situation change to the better.
