Catherine Court Tender Success
October 23, 2013
We are pleased to announce Gingerbread was successful in securing the housing related support contract for teenage parents and the new Catherine Court contract commenced on 18November 2013.
The Catherine Court service is an accommodation based service consisting of seven self-contained flats at Catherine Court, four move-on properties in the local vicinity to Catherine Court and four units of resettlement support. The service is available to expectant teenage mothers, vulnerable teenage couples with children or lone teenage parents.
A change to the existing provision is that young couples will be supported together whilst accommodated within Catherine Court. Support will focus on developing independent living skills, accessing education and employment opportunities, engaging positively with social care services, establishing networks of support, managing physical and mental health and obtaining settled accommodation.
Support is available 24 hours a day seven days a week. Referrals to this service can only be made into this service by Housing Services and Vulnerable Children and Corporate Parenting.
