Our new domestic abuse helpline and support service


Whilst our supported accommodation is for a specific length of time, we recognise that some of our clients may need longer if they are to successfully attain independent living skills. We have therefore developed our Homes 4 Life service (H4L), which is based on the housing first model.

Our H4L service accepts internal referrals from any of our existing services so that service users can continue to make progress rather than move out too soon, isolate and fail in their tenancy and return to a homeless status and/or rough sleeping.

H4L offers clients a fully furnished property. They can access support from us for up 2 years after which point they can continue to reside in the property rather than moving again.

The homes4life service manages properties that are dispersed around Bradford.


The Parent+ service was developed due to a lack of appropriate housing and support services in Bradford for single parents.

The accommodation element of our service runs on the housing first model and offer families stability in having a long term tenancy.  If however, they wish to move area, rehousing support will be made available as part of our service delivery.

We also provide a floating support/community outreach service to families who have their own accommodation but need extra support / interventions to maintain their accommodation. This approach will help to prevent families losing their home or help to identify and assist them in moving to more appropriate housing.
