Homelessness Service, Aldershot
North Lane Lodge is our specialist homeless service in Aldershot. Developed in partnership with the local council, the service supports men with complex issues who have been street homeless.
The support is tailored to meet the individual needs of each resident, with the aim of reducing their substance use and associated offending behaviour, to help them achieve a more stable and fulfilling life. The length of stay in the service is variable depending on each person’s specific needs, but our aim is to help people achieve the changes they seek in their lives within one year and help them to move into their own long-term home.
Opportunities to take part in positive activities and educational sessions are available on a daily basis and there are opportunities for people to access volunteering and work placements that help them develop their lifeskills in readiness for their eventual move back into independent living.
In the last year six people have successfully moved into their own accommodation and are enjoying a much better quality of life as a result of the changes they were able to make during their stay at North Lane Lodge.
Referrals to the service are through Rushmoor Borough Council, Inclusion and other housing providers.
