New Warwickshire housing related support service providers

Warwickshire County Council is pleased to announce the appointment of P3 (People, Potential, Possibilities) and St Basils to provide accommodation-based housing related support services for young people aged 16-25 in Warwickshire. These services will commence on 1st November 2019, replacing the service currently provided countywide by the Salvation Army Housing Association (Saha)

P3 will provide a service in the North Warwickshire, Nuneaton and Rugby borough council areas. St Basils will then pick up the Warwick and Stratford district council areas.

Councillor Jeff Morgan, portfolio holder for Children’s Services said:

“Warwickshire County Council enables all our residents to live as independently as possible and we are delighted to announce that P3 and St Basil’s will be providing support for our vulnerable young people, helping them to learn valuable lessons enabling them to live independently.”

The new services will continue to provide support to vulnerable young people to enable them to build or maintain the skills required to live independently. In turn this will help prevent the problems that can cause homelessness, hospitalisation or institutional care.

P3 Head of Support and Community Services for Warwickshire, Esther Barrett said:

“P3 are thrilled to be supporting young people within the north of the county from 1 November onwards. We have an excellent relationship with our commissioners and with St Basils, and we are really looking forward to the positive impact this service is going to make to young people’s lives.”

Matthew King, Youth Service Manager at St Basils said:

“St Basils is delighted to extend our reach delivering housing related support services to young people in Warwickshire. We are passionate about supporting young people to reach their potential and look forward to working closely with Warwickshire County Council, partner agencies and the local community to help them achieve this”.
