Housing and Support for Mother and Baby Units

Our mother and baby units are specifically designed to support young women who are pregnant or have young children. Each property is individually assessed before placement; we ensure that mothers and expectant mothers are placed in larger units equipped with everything they need, from cots to cooking facilities. Where possible, we also try to provide housing on the ground floor for ease of access.

We work closely with social workers and local agencies to ensure access to all available support services.
