At Alabaré we provide accommodation, support and training for young people in Wiltshire and Hampshire. Many of the people that we help have been homeless or have been living a chaotic lifestyle, often due to breakdown in families. We give time to each person, providing them with help and advice tailored to their specific needs and individual goals. 

“When my boyfriend and I moved into The Orchards together, we made friends with our new house mates and got a new key worker…We got on extremely well and received great support and advice from her. By living with other young people around the same age in our Alabaré house, we have both learnt valuable life skills that you need to successfully run a household. Without the help of our key worker we probably would have struggled with some things such as budgeting and we wouldn’t be in the lovely home that we have now.”

Anna, former resident.
