KiP@Maninplace is an appointment based service, we would ask you to call us first so we can ensure those sleeping rough and in emergency need are given priority support.
However, we do offer a walk-in service for people in emergency need and those without a communication device. You maybe asked to wait until a member of our team is available to assist you, or to return at a predetermined time later in the day.
If you are due to leave prison and need assistance to prevent homelessness, you will be asked to complete a telephone assessment with a member of our team.
Your resettlement worker will be required to complete a re-sit form on your behalf, this will be used in conjunction with your telephone assessment to determine the most appropriate course of action for support and accommodation needs upon release.
If you are aged 16-17 yrs, please make contact with Telford & Wrekin Council’s housing team for assistance.
Details can be found on the website.
A fond farewell
For 12 years The Salvation Army have supported and funded the kiP Information Project, during its time in Wellington, many people have received valuable support and friendship from the staff and volunteers who gave their commitment to bettering the lives of people who experienced homelessness and rough living in Telford.
January 2018 brings in a new era for the KiP Project, coming under the management of Maninplace it will now be known as KiP@Maninplace.
We are excited about having the opportunity to take the service forward from hereon, and hope the many people who have supported the KiP Project over its many years will continue to walk with us on the next part of KiP’s journey.
Everyone at Maninplace expresses their sincere thanks to The Salvation Army, in particular to the congregation of the Oakengates Corps who have given many years of commitment to the project. Without their support the service would not have been able to help the many who have relied on the KiP Project.
Thank you one and all.
