Liverpool Homelessness Services is made up very distinctive Lifehouses. Darbyshire House provides accommodation for men only, and Ann Fowler House, a Lifehouse for men and woman. Both of these services have had their local authority funding extended to October 2015, due to the successful outcomes they have achieved.
A resident's view
"Hi my name is Monique. I arrived in the UK in 2012. I eventually found myself at Ann Fowler House because I had nowhere else to live.
Whilst at Ann Fowler House I required surgery. During my stay in hospital the chaplains visited me and on my return the staff at Ann Fowler House were really supportive and helped me to make a good recovery.
Whilst at Ann Fowler House I started volunteering in the charity shop at Bootle Salvation Army, and still do.
I also attend college where I am learning to improve my English, and am really happy with my life now."
Storm came to stay in Ann Fowler House in November 2013, due to a family breakdown. She worked with health services and staff to address her health issues and says that she feels more in control of her life.
She is building relationships with her family and is working with her key worker to take steps to have her own tenancy. To achieve this Storm will be moved into the resettlement cluster, which will give her greater independence while having the support of the staff at Ann Fowler House.
Storm is taking part in some of the courses that are on offer at the centre and is working towards being able to resume full time employment once she is settled in her own accommodation.
