Homeless Health Team – St Helens

The Homeless Health team in St Helens work with extremely vulnerable people in our community.

They provide assistance and advice regarding health problems and signposting to relevant services.

The team work with clients who are homeless and vulnerably housed.

Based at the YMCA in central St. Helens, the team provide health and wellbeing assessments, health care advice, ongoing support and signposting & referrals into other services.

The care provided centres around health and wellbeing, putting the client at the centre of the provision.
