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

Ruth House

Ruth House provides low support accommodation to 7 women aged 18 and upwards for 12 months. We work with women to support them with mental health and or drug /alcohol misuse issues and to develop long term independent living skills for move on to independent accommodation or longer term supported accommodation.

Each service user has individual 4 weekly support plans and key work sessions tailored to their needs to enable them to reach their goals and aspirations. Service users are supported to manage their own flat and help with budgeting skills. As part of their support, service users are offered weekly house meetings which enables them to be included in the day-to-day running and decisions in and around the project. Service users are encouraged to attend joint planning about the bigger picture of Petrus and the opportunity to meet other service users within Petrus projects. The accommodation comprises self-contained flats.
