South Yorkshire Project

The South Yorkshire Project at Target Housing currently consists of 3 separate and very different projects in Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster. All projects are providing accommodation for vulnerable adults and families who have either become homeless or have previously struggled to maintain a tenancy and require support to succeed.

In Sheffield, the South Yorkshire Project are working in partnership with IDAS (Independent Domestic Abuse Service) to provide emergency temporary accommodation to people fleeing from domestic abuse. The service is aimed at supporting GBT+ (gay, bisexual, trans, and all minority sexual and gender identities) male victims of domestic abuse as well as single women who have multiple and complex needs and for whom Sheffield’s refuges would not be suitable. Prior to this project Sheffield did not have any specialist safe accommodation for male victims of domestic abuse and as a result they were housed in generic hostels or private rented accommodation that did not meet their needs.  While Sheffield’s refuges meet the needs of most women and children fleeing abuse it was highlighted that there is a proportion of women with multiple and complex needs that are not suitable for these refuges, creating a need for this partnership.  Target’s role is to provide secure dispersed accommodation and housing support to tenants whilst working in partnership with IDAS whose role it is to provide specialist DA support. There are currently 18 properties with the potential to expand to 25.

AASC

We pride ourselves on providing holistic and person centred support throughout the asylum and refugee journey. Our ‘wraparound’ services include advice, signposting and advocacy on issues such as housing, education, training, employment, budgeting and health. Working with partners we offer accredited ESOL, therapeutic support and short-term workshops eg creative writing groups. Service users are also invited to join our volunteering initiatives, including an allotment project. We are open to developing new services and are happy to engage in conversations about potential partnerships in which our expertise can help deliver services to those in vulnerable situations.

Maintenance

Target Housing has a dedicated Maintenance and Turnaround Team. Target ensures that all our properties are cleaned and maintained to a high standard providing safe and secure accommodation.

We have a fleet of vans responding to emergencies, routine and planned works covering areas through Doncaster, Sheffield and Rotherham.

All of our accommodation is decorated on a rolling program but we do also encourage tenants to help decorate their own rooms or house as part of their support. We also provide a gardening service to ensure our properties are in keeping with the local community.
