New style accommodation gives hope to homeless people


Business | Press | News

A new type of managed accommodation that helps homeless people build confidence and meaningful new lives for themselves was officially opened on 2 November by John Holdich, Peterborough City Council’s cabinet member for housing.

Axiom Housing Association


Peterborough-based Axiom Housing Association has built and will manage the £1 million development, at Fair View Court, Oundle Road, which has been jointly financed by the Housing Corporation, Peterborough City Council and Axiom.

“This is an exciting development that helps many homeless people move from an unsettled way of life back into mainstream housing,” said Axiom chief executive Richard Hall.

“It includes a small computer training suite that residents can use to develop a range of social and work skills that they will need as they return to a normal, settled lifestyle.”

Fair View Court has 17 bed-sit rooms together with a communal kitchen, dining room and lounge and is managed around the clock by a minimum of two staff. The City Council will nominate individuals to the project who will normally be resident for up to two years.

A second phase in the development, costing around £850,000, is currently under construction on an adjacent site and will consist of 12 self-contained flats. These will provide accommodation for people who have started to build independent lives for themselves but may still need occasional guidance from support staff.
