In addition, as Thrift Urban Housing has become more established, so we frequently find ourselves in contact with individuals in need who fall outside of the formal scope of the various services, and in these cases we will always try to help too.

Central to Thrift Urban Housing’s attitude to its work is the belief that we should never turn anyone away. If we can give support and advice we will, and if we can’t we will always refer on to other organisations who we know can.
