The Petrus Community has been providing supported housing and related services to homeless people since 1972.

Being a Trustee

Petrus is always looking for new trustees to be involved in our work. We are currently under-represented in terms of minority communities and women. We also welcome the involvement of people who have used supported housing services.

To discuss becoming a trustee please contact the Coordinator on 01706 345844.
