Supported Accommodation Stramullion

Growing strong women

Accept

The women who stay with us come from different backgrounds – young women who are in transition from care, women who don’t currently have functioning support systems,  those who have experienced the Justice System, and those for whom alcohol or drug use has become more of their lives than they are happy with. Stramullion staff can offer support to enable each woman to build the personal skills and resources they feel they need – equipping them to move on from homelessness in a positive, healthy and self directed way.

Support

We provide transitional housing for up to 10 women – there is 24-hour on-site support if needed. Each woman has a dedicated key-worker and based on their own identified needs, a personal support plan is developed, in partnership. We can signpost to services and we walk alongside them on a journey to stable emotional wellbeing. Though a lot of the time is simply spent chatting, and getting to know each other better.

Include

Stramullion has a focus on communal living and learning.

Cooking, walking, watching films, planting seeds. The women who live here, and the staff, grow from each others experience, wisdom and skills. 

Impact/Outcomes

  • Managing a tenancy
  • Emotional and mental health support 
  • Exploring motivations and taking back ownership of life choices

Meet the team

Here at Stramullion our aim is to support women both emotionally and practically to obtain their own tenancy’s, learn life skills, be independent, gain confidence and meet new people. All the women, staff and tenants, are treated with dignity and respect sharing smiles and laughter along the way.
