Trident Reach's specialist Homeless Services help people break the cycle of homelessness by supporting them to become independent and to safeguard themselves from future risk.

The following homeless services are available across Birmingham with Trident Reach:

Accommodation Based Support Service

Direct Access Accommodation

Washington Court is located in Birmingham City Centre and provides 101 beds to both men (96) and women (5) experiencing homelessness. It is a direct access hostel that takes referrals at any time, with rooms offered subject to a full assessment.

The support offered addresses the underlying issues that have contributed to the individual’s homelessness, including but not limited to; mental health, drug and alcohol addiction, financial problems and criminal activity. The maximum stay at Washington Court is 12 weeks.

Step-Down Service

Our Step-Down Service offers more independence than the Direct Access Service but with the same level of support. This service aims to find suitable accommodation and to further promote independent living.

We have multiple sites across Birmingham include Mosley and Acocks Green, all of which are suitable for both men and women. The maximum stay in a Step-Down service is six months.

Floating Support Service

Our Floating Support Service provides tailored support to families, single people and people leaving prison, who are vulnerably housed or homeless.

We deliver early intervention and preventative support packages to help people whose circumstances have become difficult, as well as act as a crisis intervention service for those whose lives have become unmanageable. Our staff are specialised in dealing with complex situations and provide professional, non-judgemental support to people when they are most in need.
