Euston-Avenue

Euston Avenue

This is one of our move on houses, sometimes referred to as GROW More, where four of our Rickmansworth Road residents have the option of moving to once they are well on their way to recovery. Here, our residents are far more self-sufficient, they are far more independent so less reliant on the main house for their day to day needs. These include cooking, cleaning, gardening and for the security of the house and for one another. They are encouraged to establish good relationships with their neighbours.

Residents here are of course welcome to come to the main house every day should they want to but their main focus is to eventually be less reliant on benefits and start back paid work once more, basically they are given more opportunity to progress.

Princess-Avenue

Princes Avenue

This is the other of our move on houses which can accommodate five, this also comes under the banner of GROW More, where five of our Rickmansworth Road residents have the option of moving to when both parties feel that they are at that stage in their recovery. Just like Euston Road, our residents are far more self-sufficient, they are far more independent so less reliant on the main house for their day to day needs. These include cooking, cleaning, gardening and for the security of the house and for one another. They are encouraged to establish good relationships with their neighbours.

Residents here are of course welcome to come to the main house every day should they want to but their main focus is to eventually be less reliant on benefits and gain paid work once more, basically they are given more both the flexibility and opportunity to progress. All of our move on house residents have the full support of our staff members for and extra assistance that they may need.

Social Housing

In almost all cases, residents who are looking to move on from Euston Road or Princes Avenue are free to seek council housing. This can be either locally or in the wider area.

Occasionally we are given a number opportunities to nominate our residents in order for them with the bidding process to secure council accommodation. For many councils, social housing is extremely limited and Watford is no different in this regard. Our staff have very good connections with the team of local Housing Officers and we will do all we can to help our residents.

Private Rented Accommodation

A selection of our residents have chosen to secure accommodation via private rental. Obviously the benefit of this is being able to more freely choose the location and type of home that’s right for them. Should they initially want to arrange this whilst claiming housing benefit we will help them with both the property search and with any application, form filling and liaising with the local Council.

Some of our residents very quickly return to paid work, either via a voluntary scheme, temporary or contract work developing into full-time paid work, job applications or in the form of returning to their former employer (all of which we can help with)
