The Project offers a housing support service which is registered with the care commission. This means that the service operates to nationally recognised standards and is regularly inspected.

Currently you will not be charged for the housing support service as it is a temporary homeless service and therefore exempt. You will be responsible for paying rent, service and furniture charges and the bills for your own home.

If you wish to be referred to the Saffron Project you can ask your Social Worker, GP or other agency worker to support you with this.

If you are not in contact with any other support agency, then please contact the project directly. They will advise you on how to get help with your referral.
