Resident Happy Life Programme
Happy Days is so much more than a roof for the residents. Together we have developed a programme using the strengths of volunteers and external professional services. The programme is led by what the residents want and need, to go from homelessness, to living independent purposeful lives.
Its all about community, connection and building networks of support. Happy Days is unique and when a resident joins us they are welcome to be a part of our community for life. Beyond our intensively supported accommodation we have move on properties that are provided with light touch support or there are volunteering opportunities to stay connected. The Happy Life Programme encourages residents to become volunteers and to get work experience through social enterprise.
All our residents are asked to engage and commit through their housing license agreement. Part of that agreement is engaging in meaningful activity Monday to Friday in Happydays Happy Life programme. The programme focus’ on 3 key areas:
