Offering pregnant young women and mothers an opportunity to rebuild their lives and prevent homelessness.

Norton Housing and Support is excited to introduce our new Parkside Women’s Scheme, housing young women in Leicester who may be facing homelessness.

The scheme is available to vulnerable / pregnant women or mothers and babies, and consists of 7 places, all of which come with a private bedroom and shared communal living area.

A unique and much needed scheme, our aim is to offer temporary housing and an opportunity for women to rebuild their lives in order to secure and sustain more permanent accommodation going forward. 

The length of stay for this Leicester housing scheme, which is reviewed every 3 months,  will depend on individual circumstances and a move on plan, where the Intensive Housing Management Officer will work closely with mothers and / or pregnant women residing at the scheme to secure permanent housing and create a brighter future for mothers and babies.

If you think you or a woman you know could use the scheme, download the Application for Housing Form for Parkside below.
