Colchester Korban Project
Who is the project for?
Who do we help?
We provide supported housing for 16-25 year olds who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, who come from or have a local connection to the Colchester area. We often accommodate people who would be vulnerable at a larger scheme and some people who have learning difficulties and occasionally learning disabilities.

How to get a referral
Colchester Joint Referral Panel and Colchester Youth Enquiry Service
We are part of the Colchester Joint Referral Panel (JRP) for supported housing providers so referrals usually come through the JRP. However, we can take referrals direct on occasion and make the panel aware of this.
For more info about the JRP please contact Gintare.email@example.com

Support and accommodation
Each resident has a named key worker who meets with them weekly and ad hoc (eg. in emergencies), and gives support on issues such as finance & budgeting, employment, life skills, education, emotional and mental health, drugs & alcohol, self-care etc. We deliver life skills projects and organise resident social events The project is not staffed overnight or at weekends but one member of staff is always on call.
