Next Steps is funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). It is a partnership project with Pentreath Ltd, Cornwall Mind, Health for Homeless (H4H) and Rethink Mental Illness providing mental health and social wellbeing support to help individuals to develop the resilience, resources and skills they need to transition out of homelessness and remain in accommodation.
Clients who are eligible for the project are:
Current rough sleepers
Those in temporary/emergency accommodation
Those who have just moved into supported accommodation (less than 3 months)
Those ready to move on from supported accommodation where mental health support could ease the transition
Referrals are made by using the Next Steps specific referral form and sending it to Cornwall Housing Limited via email (see below).
Or by telephone on: 07926 077655
