Health and Wellbeing Centre
The Health and Wellbeing Centre is often the first point of contact a homeless person has with Purfleet. We provide a safe, supportive, welcoming environment where single homeless can access a range of services.
We are committed to offering the appropriate level of support to enable an individual to access the information and help they need; our initial assessments help us to understand the needs of our clients and provides us with the information we need to work with them to put together a support plan to enable and empower them to achieve their person goals.
Our services include:
- Laundry facilities
- Change of clothes
- Benefit support
- Job search support
- Functional skills courses
- Basic life and social skills support
We use the outcome star monitoring tool to work with each individual at their own pace to build confidence, address specific needs and to improve their life skills so they can live independently and contribute positively to their community.
