Temporary Housing

Tuntum offers a range of temporary accommodation options to vulnerable people in Nottingham and Derby to help them improve the quality of their lives.

There are schemes for young people facing homelessness, young single parents, and women fleeing domestic violence. Accommodation varies from houses or flats to hostels with communal areas.

Services are targeted to assist residents’ living skills, their abilities and their goals for the future within a stable environment which promotes and enables greater independence. These services are offered on a short term, temporary basis to help individuals to gain skills, confidence and educational opportunities to them to move on into independent accommodation.

Each resident is given an individual needs assessment and will be assigned a named support worker. The support worker will help with a range of activities such as

  • Benefit claims and budget management
  • Applying for training courses or colleges
  • Accessing local health facilities
  • Preparing for interviews
  • Practical skills such as cooking and minor repairs
  • Developing confidence and life skills
  • Assisting with the move into independent living
  • Signposting to additional floating support where needed

All projects also run social activities and hold regular forums to enable residents to offer feedback and suggestions for the service.

 

How It Works

You can contact the schemes directly if you’d like to apply or just talk to staff. Potential residents are welcome to visit the scheme and meet staff members, and other residents where appropriate.

We also take referrals from local authorities and other agencies such as social services, probation, health services, youth groups, colleges, schools, and voluntary sector organisations.

Once an application form has been processed, potential residents will be asked to a formal interview to discuss their needs and support requirements.

Everyone who moves in is asked to agree to a support plan which is aimed at developing their individual living skills so that they can move on to more independent accommodation.
