Penny Wade House

Our flagship hostel consisting of 14 rooms, offers tailored, 24 hour support to people who face more complex needs after having experienced street homelessness.

The hostel priority client group are verified rough sleepers- referrals are taken from within the organisation as well as from external agencies.

Penny Wade House was our first ever hostel named after our founder, Penny Wade, in 1986.

The hostel caters for up to 14 people, all in single rooms and communal rooms and a kitchen. 

Penny Wade House provides people with short-term accommodation during which clients work to identify their needs.

The clients’ key workers and specialist staffs support them to overcome complex needs and move forward into more permanent accommodation, to consider work, volunteering or training and develop the skills they need to live independently.
