Sefton Supported Housing Group
Sefton Supported Housing Group (SSHG) is a consortium of four organisations that have joined forces to tackle homelessness in the borough.
We are four Sefton-based organisations that have joined forces to tackle homelessness in the borough under the name Sefton Supported Housing Group (SSHG).
The consortium has won a five-year contract from Sefton Council to deliver supported housing to Sefton’s homeless residents.
The consortium members are all well-established providers of housing-related services on Merseyside — The Bosco Society (the lead organisation), Venus, Excel Housing and New Start.
Our consortium delivers a service that is made up of 39 hostel places and 31 fully supported, dispersed tenancies across the borough.
Collectively the members of the SSHG consortium have a wealth of experience in delivering 24-hour hostel services, as well as in dispersed housing with integrated support.
Each client will be allocated a designated support worker who will assess their needs in depth and work with them to develop and agree a support plan to meet those needs.
The aim is to provide each client with the stability and support they require to move on to independent living.
Venus manages 17 units of supported accommodation, offering a mix of shared and dispersed properties. We deliver one-to-one work with clients and our partners to provide emotional and practical support to residents, so they may develop the skills and confidence they need to make a success of living independently.
