St. Luke’s provides a service to homeless people with a life limiting condition.

‘Homeless’ covers individuals rough sleeping, living in hostels or shelters, sofa surfing or in an insecure tenancy.

We work with homeless people and their support network which may include family, friends, homelessness support workers, voluntary groups, GPs, hospital teams and drug and alcohol services, amongst others.

Many of our service users have complex needs and require assistance to navigate an equally complex health and social care system.

We offer support through advocacy, case coordination and planning for the future. We offer training in hostels, hospitals and universities. We link in to other St. Luke’s services so that service users can access counselling support, Day Hospice and inpatient care.

In order to access the service, in the first instance please contact Alison Colclough, Homelessness Service lead.
