Routes to Roots

Routes to Roots

Founded on Christian principles, Routes to Roots seeks to help all homeless and vulnerably housed people in Poole regardless of their faith.

Housing Icon

Housing

To provide security and warmth, where there is immediate social and spiritual support as well as the basic necessities: food, clothing, a place to wash and a place to rest.

Amos House provides supported housing for three men, and we are working towards another property for female clients.

Support Icon

Support

We provide support needs on an individual basis. Often this includes developing self esteem, social skills, community engagement and employment skills.

We also act as an advocate dealing with other agencies, such as landlords, mental health & addiction teams, council officers & police.

Access Icon

Access

We are committed to ending the recycling of homelessness.

Once accommodated, we continue to ensure access to help and assistance needed for maintaining that accommodation, enabling people to become rooted in their community.

Routes to Roots

Founded on Christian principles, Routes to Roots seeks to help all homeless and vulnerably housed people in Poole regardless of their faith.

At four drop-ins R2R provides basic necessities, such as hot food, clothing and sleeping bags, and offers indoor & outdoor motivational activities, which aim to boost self-confidence and develop skills.

In addition, internet and telephone facilities, 'care of address' and one-to-one support, guidance & information are provided. From November 2015 Routes to Roots has provided supported accommodation to three of Poole's homeless.
