The Saviour Trust

Supported housing for the homeless. However, we are more than just a housing agency and recognise the complex needs and issues our homeless service users have. We aim to provide a holistic and personalised approach to our support work by seeking to address a wide range of issues including drug and alcohol misuse, employment, training and life skills, family and friend reconciliation and clothing and food provision.

Our services include housing provision, often in the form of 3 bedroom properties and single occupancy flats, two information and advice 'drop in' sessions per week, an emergency 'soup kitchen' per week, bi weekly visits to all our tenants and a clothing and food parcel service. We also have established partnerships with a wide range of specialist organisations including but not limited to Green Pastures who provide us with some of our houses; Turning Point, who provide a weekly needle exchange service and weekly appointments from our centre; Sainsbury's Plc and Fairshare who provide us with food and toiletries; and West Yorkshire Police and Probation who provide specialist support, advice and training.
