Introduction
The Male Only service offers supported accommodation to single males aged 18 and over who have a local connection with Rochdale and who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

What the Service Delivers
The service provides single occupancy accommodation, in 13 fully furnished, self-contained flats within a grouped accommodation project, and 15 properties dispersed in the community. The project also offers communal facilities including a garden, meeting room, and access to IT facilities.

Staff are based in an on-site office, and the service is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Resettlement Staff at the service work with clients on a one to one basis to deliver a package of support that is specific to individual needs. Staff specialise in delivering housing related support but will work with a variety of specialist service providers in order to deliver a co-ordinated approach for people who have additional support needs that are not specifically housing related.
