Sheffield is the home of our first accommodation project, Peile House, which opened on 17 March 1978.

Peile House offers quality supported accommodation in 10 bedsits and 4 self-contained flats in a large property in the North of the city.  

The project provides housing related support to vulnerable young women at risk which includes single young women, and those who are pregnant or already have a child in their care. 

The service supports young women to gain the skills and confidence that they will need to make the transition from homelessness to independence; to reestablish  relationships with family and to return home where appropriate. 

If you're a young woman in need of our services, and you are aged 16 to 25 years, then please contact Sheffield City Council’s Housing Support Pathway. 

Once a young woman has made contact with the Housing Support Pathway, she will be assessed by their team. The young woman will then be matched with an appropriate accommodation provider. If you feel that a young woman specifically needs the support of the Peile House Project, then you should mention this at the assessment stage. Whilst there are no guarantees, the council will try to accommodate the specific wishes of clients where they can.
