How Hosting Works

How Hosting Works

Our scheme provides accommodation by matching survivors of modern slavery with volunteer host households. This is an independent, voluntary, adult to adult living arrangement facilitated by Hope at Home. Every host has been assessed, trained and undertaken a DBS check.

We support the hosts to provide a safe and secure home and give an opportunity to begin to rebuild their lives.

Hosts offer a private bedroom and shared use of their home. Hosts are not able to provide any professional services to their guests.

We are able to provide accommodation to those who have no recourse to public funds and therefore are at risk of being destitute.

*Please note, we are not an emergency accommodation service and aim to reply to referrals within 72 hours of receipt.

Please read our Guidance for Referrals  information before filling in our Make a Referral Form.

Guest Wellbeing Support Package

At Hope at Home, we prioritise the wellbeing and independence of our guests. Recognising the importance of access to essential services, we have created a Wellbeing Support Package, based on guest feedback, which is designed to enhance our guests’ overall sense of wellness.

– For eligible guests not receiving other financial aid (NRM, asylum allowances), we provide £35 per week on a prepaid card.
– An additional £20 per week is allocated for travel needs.
– Available until June 2024 due to funding constraints.

Gym Memberships:

– Fitness enthusiasts among our guests can benefit from monthly rolling gym memberships.
