In Doncaster we run a wide range of services making vital changes to the lives of families within the town. We believe that by assisting families at an early stage in their own homes we can produce significant results, and prevent problems further down the line.
Green Gables in Mexborough opened in 2004 in partnership with Together Housing with a remit to provide safe accommodation in 5 houses and eight self contained apartments on the Green Gables site.
Since 2010 we have been helping around 75 families at any one time with one-2-one support and training. We help build successful, resilient family units, sharing the knowledge and skills they need to live independently. Recently we have expanded this to provide services to 109 families by being part of the UK Government's Building Successful Families Programme.
We can support a family for up to two years , and can offer support to mothers, fathers, carers and grandparents who have dependent children. The staff team work in partnership with other professionals to provide a varied support package and can help with everything from debt and household management, to preparing for work.
Green Gables can accept applications from single young women and young women with children who are aged between 16 to 25 years. Priority is given to those aged 16 to 18 years.
