Safestop Manchester works closely with Manchester City Council and other housing providers as part of the Manchester Young People’s Housing Alliance - working together to improve supported housing for young people in the city.
We have been in Manchester since 2000, working for young people in need.
Safestop is a high-need project and will often house young people in crisis. We currently have 12 well-presented bedrooms, two with ensuite facilities, plus one emergency bedroom for young people at risk of rough sleeping.
Each young person who is referred to us is assessed on an individual basis - and a support package put in place around them.
This support can be helping them take small steps such as registering with a doctor and attending appointments, assessing young people to make sure they are getting the right help, and referring to specialist agencies, when needed.
The support provided is person-centred and holistic in its aims, ensuring all young people have services to benefit their personal plan.
Our main objective is to provide independent living skills to enable our young people to move into their own tenancy or into semi-supported living.
This involves helping them develop a structure and productive daily routine that is beneficial to them as they develop and move towards independence.
Young people will be encouraged to attend tenancy training to increase their chances of getting their own tenancy.
We realise this will not happen over night. We celebrate the potential of people, and our skilled workforce, equipped with the knowledge of local agencies and amenities, are able to help them take a step in the right direction.
