We support people whatever their housing situation. From outreach for people rough sleeping, to prevention support if things start to go wrong, our teams are there to provide advice and guidance along the way. Working closely with other local organisations, we are able to signpost for any specialist support that might be needed.
For many years, the SMART Prebend Support Hub has been a ‘go to’ place for people experiencing homelessness or needing advice about housing.
The team provide support and food, alongside access to essential amenities such as laundry facilities and showers.
SMART First Point supports people in Bedford who are homeless, rough sleeping or who are worried they will soon become homeless.
We help people ‘on the street’ who are rough sleeping, helping them to move into accommodation as quickly as possible, to enable support and improve safety. Our Housing Advisors support people who are worried they might lose their accommodation, or who are at risk of becoming homeless, aiming to prevent this from happening wherever possible.
At Rogers Court, we offer support for people who have previously slept rough that need additional help to maintain accommodation. Each of the 20 self-contained flats provides a welcoming living space, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom area.
The on-site team support residents to work on their goals and aspirations, alongside working towards future longer-term housing options.
Our emergency provision hosts 24/7 support for people who have been verified rough sleeping by our Outreach team. Each individual in our emergency accommodation is provided with a safe space to sleep, store their belongings and spend their time. Our team is on site for support, advice and to make referrals for broader support services where necessary.
