People are at the front and centre of what we do – those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Our clients – those who are already using Stonepillow hostels, hubs and services. Our staff and volunteers. But campaigning is also an important strand of our work.
We are engaged with a range of other public and private agencies and partners in order to influence and create the conditions which would make our services less necessary:
All Stonepillow staff are committed to our values: client-first; collaboration; diversity; innovation; quality; respect; kindness and professionalism.
- Ending rough sleeping and reducing homelessness both locally and nationally.
- Providing more affordable and good quality housing for all those who are vulnerable and in need.
- Achieving a system-wide approach to tackling the issues that cause homelessness.
There is never a single solution to a complex issue, and so we aim to bring our expertise and hands-on experience to debates, policy-making and service provision.
Now I am living in Stonepillow accommodation, I have the security I need to address other issues that have been a constant worry. I can’t thank Stonepillow enough for helping sort everything out and for helping me begin to get my life back on track.Stonepillow Client
I work five days a week Monday to Friday. Tuesday and Thursday evenings are the only days the hub is open in the evening and are the only days I can receive support without jeopardising my income.Stonepillow Client
My previous feelings of uselessness and having no self-worth diminished. I was given responsibility, I was trusted, someone believed in me.Stonepillow Client
The hub enables me to clean up, freshen up after work. As a construction worker this is perfect as I work a dirty job and there is nowhere else which can provide me with this service.Stonepillow Client
Stonepillow's Recovery Service gave me a support network which meant I didn’t feel alone. Having a key worker and being around people in the same situation was invaluable and I learnt so much about myself.Stonepillow Client
On top of shower facilities the hub is a place where I can eat, talk and communicate with the staff and other members about my day, my feelings and any emotions I may want to get off my chest. They are amazing at what they do, and I’d hate to think what position I’d be in if this kind of help wasn’t available.Stonepillow Client
