Swindon supported housing projects appeal for household basics

Four of Stonewater’s supported housing projects in Swindon are appealing to the community for kitchenware, crockery, white goods, bedding and other basic household items which are urgently needed by residents moving from the projects into independent living over the next few months.

“We had a tremendous public response to our Christmas campaign with many generous local people going online to our Amazon wish-list to buy winter clothing and other essential items for our residents,” says Swindon Foyer Manager Michelle Mueller. “Many of our residents moving into new accommodation have very few possessions to start their new lives with. It’s a big ask but we’re hoping the community will help us again with bedding, curtains, kitchen and tableware, and cleaning products.”

The four projects making the appeal are the Swindon Foyer in Bath Road and Radnor Lodge, Radnor Street, which both house homeless young people, and Bow Court and Hazelmead House in Bath Road which provide supported accommodation for residents with mental health and learning needs. The projects provide safe and secure accommodation for these vulnerable people, with the aim of helping them to eventually live independently in the community.

Stonewater owns and operates four foyers, two women’s refuges and a wide range of other supported housing projects for adults and young people across the South of England.
