The Karis Project provides supported accommodation and floating support for young mums and their children, and single women aged 16-30. Our service users have been homeless and are overcoming areas of vulnerability including poor mental wellbeing, domestic violence or isolation.
This project is on-going
Oasis Aquila Housing
The project provides accommodation and support to young women and their children who require additional support. Many of the women we support are fleeing domestic violence and need to make a new start for themselves and their children.
The women and children live in their own tenancy and support workers visit their home to provide practical help and advice.

Success will be relieving homelessness for up to 42 women and children per annum.
Long term changes this project will bring about include stability and securtity for women aged 16-30 and their children.
Risks to the project include engagement of the women in recieving support from the project and ensuring the tenancies are amanged appropriately. We deal with these risks by putting in place a clear warning system regarding non engagment.
