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

Egerton Crescent

Project Aims

This project provides housing with support for four single female residents who have low-level housing support needs. The service has been commissioned by the Petrus community for individuals who may be socially isolated but do not have high support needs. Prospective residents may struggle to maintain their own tenancies without some general housing management support.

The support we will provide can include help with budgeting, advocacy, support with managing income/benefits and debt issues. Staff will also support residents with obtaining move on accommodation through our links with R.M.B.C. and the Bond Board when appropriate. Residents will be expected to attend key work sessions with staff and complete a needs assessment/support plan.

The project is part of the new “Health and Wellbeing Hub” we are developing around our Long Street Project in Middleton. This allows residents to take part in group activities and courses designed to promote personal wellbeing and improve their general health (activities available on request).


The accommodation comprises of four large bedrooms with a shared kitchen, living room and two shared bathrooms. The bedrooms are fully furnished and the kitchen has been stocked with cooking utensils.

Egerton Street is located within the Heywood area and is a five minute walk from the town centre. There are regular bus services to Rochdale and Bury and a number of local shops within the local area.
