Sage House

The Right Support, Right Supported Housing, Right Alternative To a Hostel Environment

Sage House is Semi-independent group living home, for four 18+ year old women. Specialising in trauma informed emotional wellbeing for vulnerable and single homeless women only, in a safe and comfortable environment. Sage House has been designed to provide an environment that promotes independence, resilience and respect. Our TraumaInformed Practice is a strengths-based framework grounded in an understanding of and responsiveness to the impact of trauma and creates opportunities for women to build capability and  a sense of control and empowerment.

Our Focus

  • Personal and social development: Through which women  develop social and emotional capabilities, including determination, self-control, persistence and self-motivation.
  • Social and emotional capabilities: Soft skills or non-cognitive skills, communication, creativity, confidence managing feelings, problem solving, leadership skills, resilience, and self esteem.
  • Developing social, communication, and team working skills: The ability to learn from experience, control behaviours, and make good choices; and the self-esteem, resilience, and motivation to persist towards goals and overcome setbacks.
  • Educational development and achievement/career success: Participation in training, literacy and numeracy, language participating in community courses, and activities, taking advice on services to improve education, budgeting and tenancy support.
  • Being Healthy: Transforming care services for women  with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs
  • Positive relationships: Those which can also be measured and valued by other women, by accessing public services, local communities, and family networks and by having positive relationships, with involvement in meaningful, enjoyable activities.

Each women will have a support worker who will be available to them throughout the day, and a manager will be on call during the night.

We have staff on duty throughout the day. The night is covered by an on-call manager and tenants have the number available to them twenty-four (24) hours a day and there is a Manager on-call to offer the staff support and advice as, and when, the need arises.

All staff will undergo checking and clearance with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) with the appropriate references received before they are offered employment and have an induction to ensure that they have sufficient skills and knowledge to carry out their duties within Goddess Living.

The staffing team are all females who have skills to cater for the complex needs of the customers. All staff will have gone through an induction process; there is also further training carried out regularly to enhance the skills and knowledge of the staff to ensure that they are equipped to work with women who may have complex needs.

The staffing team ensures that the majority of the cultural, religious and linguistic backgrounds of the women are catered for. Our staff work towards empowering women so that they will be able to live within the community with a sense of pride, sense of belonging and social responsibility.

We are committed and passionate for women to have an impactful and positive life.
