Our aims are to create a conducive environment in our shelter in which homeless people can regain confidence; the ability to become independent, improve their health and state of mind.
The Highway House provides food, recreation, counselling, employment training and pastoral support to about 50 men at a time (for very short periods we have had to shelter women also). The project has been in existence since August 2009 and over the past three and a half years over 500 people have been beneficiaries of the Highway House. Residents have either found stable employment that enables them to rent a property; or have been provided housing by the council whilst others have gained enough stability to return back to their countries of origin.

The upgrade will make the living space more comfortable for residents as well as more durable for the extensive use of it.
