A new specialist supported housing provider has launched its first home for people at risk of homelessness in Wigan, coinciding with the NHF’s Starts at Home Day.

With more than 10 years experience in the social housing sector with Chartered Status of the CIH, House2Home are experts at turning empty, disused properties into homes, providing high-quality, safe and comfortable supported housing.
House2Home is supporting the NHF’s Starts at Home Day on Friday September 1st, which is celebrating the value of care and support services and the difference that having a safe and secure place to call home can make to people’s lives.
House2Home provides weekly support services for residents which are needs led and tailored to residents’ individual circumstance, which could range from helping with a housing benefit application, debt and welfare management advice or signposting to training and employment opportunities. All bedrooms are en-suite where possible with an in-house maintenance manager.
