“The homeless are still the priority, but each and every visitor to the Wellspring is an individual, with their own history and their own needs.”
Mr Andrew Ayres
Every single person who suffers homelessness is an individual with an individual set of circumstances and needs. At The Wellspring we assess each and every case of homelessness. Over many years The Wellspring has built up a knowledge base of different ways of tackling homelessness and its root causes.
Homelessness has been increasing in Stockport every year for the last 10 years and we don’t envisage things changing anytime soon as further cuts to services and benefit reforms impact on people.
We are constantly looking at ways to improve and develop our services to offer a better service to anyone who finds themselves homeless or at risk of homelessness. The Wellspring is open 365 days a year and the staff team are always available and willing to support anyone with any issue.
Wellspring project staff offer a support planning service to everyone who is homeless. This is basically a tick list of what needs to be done by an individual to get back in to housing. We can then break each step down and set targets to tick each step off. The more an individual does to address their homelessness then the more chance they have of getting off the streets quickly.
