Dashwood House

Category: Collectathon

Collect and donate non-perishable food items and support Dashwood House,  a 26-bed Supported Housing project for vulnerable young homeless women with low to medium support needs. The project is staffed 24 hours a day with sleep-in staff and is funded by their Local Authority, Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, and the Supporting People Team.

Dashwood House teaches life skills to Service Users to enable them to live fully independent lives in the community. This is achieved through a continuous process of monitoring and assessment known as link working. All Service Users are allocated a Linkworker. Service users are encouraged to participate in the daily activities of the project.

Service Users have their own bedsit but share communal facilities such as kitchens, laundry and lounges. The maximum length of stay at Dashwood House before move on is 2 years.

The Project

This year Dashwood House is relying on groups to collect and donate non perishable food items and basic toiletry items for their tenants.
