Press Release - March 2013

These are exciting times for Petrus Community. In the last couple of months Petrus has been undergoing some dramatic changes - all to the good. We have received funding from the Homeless Transition Fund, from the Health and Social Care Volunteer Fund and from the local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group to help us with our work as follows:

  • Step up Rochdale - No Second Night Out (see press release) - in partnership with the Bond Board
  • Step up Rochdale - BHealthy project - developing a volunteering project to work with service uses
  • Step up Rochdale - Lodgings scheme - developing a volunteer lodgings scheme for short placements
  • Green Gym Worker - developing various gardening projects with Petrus service user in the community
  • Coppice Street, Oldham - Petrus has taken over management of a Regenda property in Oldham to provide ongoing support to men with enduring low level support needs

The Petrus Community is now committed to developing and sustaining three major strands of work:

  • Petrus People - with the Univalet partnership with Manchester University that started in November 2012 and the Petrus Store which will be opening imminently.
  • Step up Rochdale - as above.
  • Petrus Supported Housing - Petrus continues to manage a range of supported housing services in Rochdale and now in Oldham.
