Emergency Accommodation Move-on Accommodation Resettlement
Step One (Emergency Accommodation)
In most instances service users are initially referred into our emergency accommodation where an assessment is carried out to identify needs, from this a support programme is structured with liaison from other agencies involved. The support plan will identify housing, cultural, emotional, education, learning and development needs, address mental and physical health issues, substance misuse and parenting skills. The service user will also participate in life skills training where abilities can be measured and enhanced where needed.
From April 2015 Jericho will offer a flexible length of stay tailored to meet the individual needs of the client. They will have access to support staff and will agree a plan of support to aid successful resettlement into the community via our “three steps to resettlement” programme.

Step Two (Move-on Accommodation)
When service users have completed all necessary move on assessments they are then transferred into our semi-independent bedsit complex where they can demonstrate the life skills they have acquired to run a home of their own. Support staff promote and encourage independence but offer assistance and guidance where it is needed. Communal facilities continues the family atmosphere of Jericho Wolverhampton.
Step Three (Resettlement)
This is a move back into the community either into a council, housing association or private tenancy. This move on is facilitated by support staff and signposting to relevant agencies is integral.
