nine-one-oneNine One One

Nine One One is one of our housing developments in the Broomhall area of Sheffield. They specialise in providing supported accommodation to people with a range of complex needs, primarily focusing on substance misuse and alcohol dependency issues. Such complex needs often result in secondary issues, such as mental health issues, anti-social behaviour and offending.

The aim of the project is to prevent homelessness and give customers a safe place to live and recover.

At Nine One One we give everyone a chance. We’re committed to working with our customers to develop the skills they need to live independently and make positive changes that enable them to reach their potential. This could be anything from management of addiction problems through to cooking skills and confidence building.

Sheffield Thursday Project

Since 1991, the Sheffield Thursday Project has been supporting people with differing needs in their own homes. It was the first service of its type in the country, and we now work with a range of housing providers in the city.

We manage properties on behalf of more than 100 customers – with the ultimate aim of helping our customers gain enough confidence to live independently, maintain their own tenancy and finally – become the housing provider’s tenant.

If you’d like more about the Sheffield Thursday Project, our factsheet should give you all the details your need. You can also give us a ring on 0114 2900 250 or email us at t.sheffield@syha.co.uk with any questions and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

By the way, if you’re wondering why it’s called the Thursday Project back in 1991 when we were really struggling with what to call the service, nothing quite seemed to fit. We then looked across at the calendar and you guessed it, it was a Thursday! The name stuck from there and we’ve even got similar projects in Rotherham and Barnsley.
