St Anne’s Hostel
St Anne’s has space for 35 residents. Each has his own room and they have shared toilet and shower facilities. The hostel also has learning, games, and dining rooms. Dogs are allowed to stay in their owners’ rooms. We have strong links with other organisations aiming to assist the homeless, both locally and nationally.
St Anne’s takes referrals 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, if a vacancy is available. We cater for single males 25 years old and over.
There is no upper limit although residents need to be fully mobile and have only low needs. To secure accommodation they will need proof of income, identification and £70.70 for two weeks rent in advance.
We are committed to providing:
- Good quality, 24 hour, direct access accommodation for homeless men over 25 years of age.
- A safe and secure environment where we can offer a service which meets the immediate welfare needs of clients, a signposting service to agencies appropriate to each client’s individual needs and encouragement in obtaining and then retaining move-on accommodation.
- A range of welfare services and advice to the homeless in Birmingham
St. Anne’s operates an equal opportunities policy that puts the highest value on respecting the rights, dignity and privacy of all.
Our main source of income is housing benefit. We also receive support from various charities and trusts.
The hostel has always provided a safe and secure alternative to life on the streets, giving men the opportunity to rebuild their self-confidence and for an increasing number, make permanent changes to their lifestyle.
In 2008, Park View opened. This block of 17 self-contained flats was built to provide a focus for independent living, learning and development. Unfortunately, in 2009 we were unsuccessful in retaining Supporting People Funding. Although closure looked possible, through the hard work and dedication of the team, we stayed open. We now provide a bed for the night and breakfast for 35 residents, with the intention of resuming our client support and move-on service in the future.
