What we do

Housing & Accommodation

Following the Housing First Feasibility Study that was undertaken in Torbay, Shekinah and Torbay Council have formed an Alliance which started delivering a new Housing First service in March 2019.

To learn more about Housing First and the service, we have produced a short film explaining our aspirations for the future. If you require any further information please contact us at housingfirst@shekinah.co.uk.
