Accommodation

TASC (Target Housing and Action Housing for Safer Communities) is located in central Sheffield. We provide accommodation and support for vulnerable and homeless individuals, most specifically support for current offenders, ex-offenders and those at risk of offending.

TASC provide support in properties managed by ourselves for those individuals who have found it difficult sustaining a tenancy. Our aim is to support the individual towards independent living and an eventual crime-free lifestyle addressing issues such as benefits and tenancy support, budgeting, managing bills, debt advice/management as well as signposting to other specific charities & organisations across the region.

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible for this project, you must have a local area connection and be over the age of 18 and be a current offender, have a history of offending or be at significant risk of offending. If you are unsure if you fit this criteria, please do not hesitate to call on 0114 249 6575.
