William Booth House, Hull, is set over six floors, offering assessment, direct access and resettlement support with a mix of catered and non-catered rooms, including shared housing options.
William Booth House operates many activities and day trips for residents; addition to pool, snooker and other games. The centre has regular events and trips to local museums and attractions. Mission is a very important aspect of the centre, with well attended worship held six days each week. William Booth House is an exceptional Lifehouse. It is well managed, maintained and provides a first-rate, caring and successful service to its residents.
William Booth House in Hull won the Centre of the Year Award for Homelessness Services in 2013. Home of a resettlement programme for 26 of its residents, this involves a multi-module training and development course to teach independent living skills.
It has a very high success rate, evidenced by positive move-on and a high level of tenancy maintenance thereafter.
Accepting the award, Centre Manager, Miriam Ellerington, said: “Well they do say that behind a good man is a good woman, and behind me is a good management team. Every time someone comes for an inspection, I say it’s our team, our staff, and our residents. It is a shock, but I do thank God, because he is at the centre of our centre."
