Dukes House in Chatham provides supported accommodation for 9 residents at any one time. Residents are referred via the rough sleeping initiative or housing options.
The One Big Family team of well trained volunteers provide support to help turn lives around. Building trust takes time and effort but the team are able to help residents in so many ways. Our residents are
Learning life skills such as cooking and cleaning
Learning how to pay bills and look after their money
Receiving help with getting to appointments
Receiving medical attention (including dentists and opticians)
Learning to listen to instructions and follow rules
Showing residents that you actually care and are not going to give up on them even if they make a mistake is such an important part of what we do at Dukes House. Offering a listening ear and kindness makes a world of difference.
