The Cresset Peterborough
The accommodation consists of 61 self-contained studio flats with en-suite facilities and 28 licensed flats with shared facilities, including a laundry, gymnasium and computer suite.
Service users are initially moved into licensed accommodation which offers them a room and access to a shared kitchen and bathroom. With on-going support residents are given the life skills to empower and enable them to move onto more independent living within the building. They will be allocated a Key Worker who will work with them to identify their needs and, through a Support Plan, help them achieve their goals. Staff offer support with budgeting, seeking employment (including CV writing and interviewing skills), health (mental and physical), social needs and independent living.
The Cresset accepts referrals from any agency and self referral by telephone or by mail. All applicants must be willing to engage with the support on offer. If you would like further information about the Cresset you can contact the hostel directly on 01733 269621.
