Adelaide House Case Study


ADELAIDE HOUSE
CLOTHES RAIL EVENT CASE STUDY


As GTDT continue to engage with the community we have now linked up with Adelaide House Women's Approved Premises, situated within the Edge Lane area of Liverpool.

Being one of only five such facilities in the country, Adelaide House hostel accommodates and works with adult women from the age of eighteen and is accountable to the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) now part of the Ministry of Justice.

Adelaide House staff work with female offenders who arrive quite often, with complex needs across a range of issues, from drug and alcohol addiction, offending behaviour, learning difficulties, self harm, homelessness, domestic violence and personality disorder/mental health, and work in-conjunction with Merseyside Probation Trust and Merseyside Police

Adelaide House is very well equipped with a range of single and double bedrooms, showers and bathrooms, there is also a residents lounge, dining room, laundry, kitchen and garden which is fully maintained by residents and staff, also a group room and IT Suite. Various courses are run on site including Furniture Restoration, Anger Management, Women’s Empowerment/Freedom Project (DV Awareness).Cookery, Keep Fit, Gardening and GTDT’S clothes Rail event will be very useful to the residents that are in great need of some extra support.

I met with Lindsey, the Manager at Adelaide House and we discussed ways in which we could offer our support and services, we are now happy to announce that we are all very excited to bring our GTDT Clothes Rail event to yet another amazing organisation.

We are due to hold our first Clothes Rail event on 23rd May 2019, at Adelaide House, which will include an informal chat in regards to possible courses that GTDT can offer, and hope this will be the first event of many. Lindsey, the Manager said “I am looking forward to our first event with GTDT; the ladies here will love it as some of them arrive here with nothing”

Watch this space for updates and future developments.
