Penrose – Bridge House
Bridge House is supported accommodation for expectant mothers, mothers with up to 2 children under the age of 10 years old as well as single women aiming to have guardianship of their children. They are a service designed to support women to move onto independent living with confidence. They are a safe and stable environment which works on an individualised approach so that both the mother and child/children can thrive in their future.
They are able to assist individuals from basic interventions and guidance around resettlement and gaining or sustaining independent living. They assist with a range of situations such as: safety in the home, parenting skills, family wellbeing, mental health, offending or ex-offending, substance misuse and domestic abuse/violence. Their service gives families the chance to focus on a fresh start as well as their future. They will support the families with their aspirations & dreams, so they are able to maintain and sustain their independence when they gain their independence within the community.
Also at Bridge House they have an activities co-ordinator and early years practitioner to support the children and the mothers.
