A RESIDENT’S STORY  

Jonathan tells his story.

I was facing life on the streets, sleeping in doorways when I arrived at Exaireo. I had lost everything (house, job, friends) because of my alcohol addiction.


Exaireo allowed me to stay in one of their shared houses and provided the support I needed to rebuild my life. Through courses and one-to-one sessions with my support worker I learnt how to live with my addiction and met a new circle of friends.


I am now living in my own house, working again and back in touch with my family.


Without Exaireo I wouldn’t be here!

A BRIEF HISTORY, THE STORY SO FAR...

The Exaireo Trust was founded by a small group of friends that felt passionately that there needed to be a local organisation helping those that were homeless.


HELPING THE HOMELESS

Providing temporary supported accommodation.

The Exaireo Trust is a local Christian Charity and Registered Social Landlord providing temporary supported accommodation and a holistic service to single adults that are homeless.


We currently have eleven houses in Loughborough and Coalville supporting more than 40 residents. Through the provision of a home, access to healthcare, help to develop lifeskills and encouragement back into work we aim to assist individuals to move-on to live independently in the future.


We recently opened our first Community House specifically aimed at those recovering from drug and alcohol addictions; Inspiration House has a member of staff living on site and runs a structured day programme to help the residents.


Getting residents back to work is important and we provide a number of volunteering opportunities:

- G& S Services CIC offer Tree surgery, Gardening and Property Maintenance services.

- The Exaireo Furniture Project take unwanted furniture and electrical goods and either sell them  or give these to those in need in our local community.

- Our Ethos project works with residents to find suitable work placements with local businesses. We have close links with Loughborough University and Diam UK.
