UTILITY STREET HOSTEL
It is essential that staff have the ability to empathise and support individuals who are homeless and/or transitioning to independent living. Being homeless is in itself a difficult and frustrating position for anyone. In addition, many homeless individuals have needs arising from mental illness and/or substance abuse. At times this can lead to challenging behaviour on the part of a service user. From time to time there is a risk of violence or aggressive behaviour towards staff and other service users.
