Barnabas House is our service for vulnerable women, who are homeless and aged from 16 years.
At Barnabas House we will support you to identify and pursue your aspirations through training, education, and employment. When you arrive at Barnabas House you'll be introduced to your key worker who will work with you to agree an Action Plan based on your individual needs.
Barnabas House is a large home, which was fully refurbished in 2013. There are 9 bedrooms in the house, and each is individual. Residents of the house share a good sized communal lounge and kitchen.
We provide resettlement support early on in your stay to ensure that when the time comes, you can move on to the best accommodation for you.
The home is close to the centre of Salisbury, where there are numerous shops, a cinema and leisure centre. There are excellent public transport links to other parts of the City, and mainline train services. Wiltshire College campus is also close by and training courses are available through the local Learn Direct centre and College.
At Barnabas House we run a number of activities for you to get involved with, for example art therapy sessions, creative writing groups, bingo and pamper nights.
Due to the nature of our project, all staff members and volunteers are female. Our staff provide 24 hour cover at the home. We do not allow alcohol or illegal drugs on the premises.
All referrals to Barnabas House come via Wiltshire Council Housing Options Team.
