Welcome to the new Bosco House website. We provide supported accommodation for homeless adult men. We have thirteen rooms at the main house and also manage ten fully independent flats in the local community. Residents of the main house are encouraged to move into one of the flats when they feel they are ready.
Please browse the site, which tells you all about the work we do, keeps you up-to-date with the latest Bosco House activities, and provides information about the kind of supported housing and independent tenancy provision we can provide at Bosco House.
Now, a bit about us. Bosco house was opened in 1983 by Father Booth, a Salesian priest who taught in the local secondary school. He opened the house in response to the growing homelessness of young men whose lives had been affected by drug use.
In 2008, Bosco was successful in its bid to Communities and Local Government for Places for Change funding (now known as Homes and Communites Agency). The funding was matched by Sefton Metropilitan Borough Council and Sefton Drug Action Team (Sefton DAT) to enable the property to be refurbished to a high standard. This transformation took almost one year to complete. During this period, the Trustees Management and Staff team embarked on an important culture change without losing sight of its original ethos.
Bosco has been credited for its partnership work and it's ability to embrace change and promote good practice. In 2009 The National Treatment Agency (NTA) acknowledged this by awarding a further £135,000 towards the improvment of the training facilities (Futures Suite).
