Spitalfields Crypt Trust

Move-on House

Upon graduating from the six-month recovery programme at Acorn House, residents may be offered a place at our move-on house in Leyton.

The purpose of our move-on accommodation is to provide friendly homes for men who are ready to move towards independent living.

We offer two phases of supported housing. Once residents have completed their first stage, they have the opportunity to move into our supported housing in Leyton. To support their ongoing recovery, residents in our supported housing maintain regular contact with their expert keyworker and continue to access our Training and Development programme and recovery community.

Many begin going back to work or college or start work at one of our social enterprises.

Not everyone makes a planned move into our move-on house, some go back to their families or we can help them to find suitable accommodation with our housing partners.

We offer the following services at our supported houses:

  • One-to-one key work sessions
  • Peer support
  • Researching professional and technical courses
  • Training and employment support

“Not only have I been able to recover but I’ve also been able to integrate back into the community in a really gentle, soft, loving kind of way. It feels very natural and very ‘un project-like’.”
