New stretch target

An increase in income will allow us to secure flats for longer, giving vulnerable residents more security and enabling them to find their own home in their own time.

Nomad are a small, locally based, charity working to support the most vulnerable people in our community. 

We provide homes for those in need, and a complete support programme to help them through any mental health issues, to gain employment skills and to learn to live independently. 

Our focus for 2020 and beyond is our Training Flats programme. These allow young people to learn the skills they need to live independently, while still receiving support and guidance from our team. These flats support on average 34 people per year, and enable 88% of our clients to achieve independent living in private rental accommodation. For every individual who gets help through these flats, we save the public £3,251.00 which would be spent on continued emergency housing services. We also transform the lives of our service users.

Last year we received over 350 referrals from Sheffield council to our services, in light of the recent events, and the ongoing housing crisis, this number is likely to grow. We need your help to expand our programme and open more doors to vulnerable young people facing homelessness.
