Phase Three – Vision

The Carpenters Arms

Phase Three

Phase 3 is all about getting on with life after the programme, with particular focus on spiritual development, education, employment and life skills.

It is a time for residents to start establishing who they are again and a time for release.

Our aim for the accommodation is to give residents a realistic experience of how to maintain their own accommodation in the future. We meet this aim through keeping the houses maintained to a high standard and in some cases we assist the owners in developing these properties.

Phase 3 accommodation will only have four residents and one staff member per house. Some of these houses are in the heart of the busy town Loughborough, and some are more rural for those wanting a more scenic and less busy environment. These houses are mostly around Charnwood though we do have properties in North West Leicestershire and will continue to branch out.

An ongoing part of recovery includes a healthy social network and so we encourage our residents and staff to have a positive impact on the communities local to each Phase 3 house.

The Phase 3 programme welcomes residents who have been through programmes similar the Carpenters Arms and may be seeking to relocate to the midlands and into a safe environment. This is as well as our own residents who have been through Phase 1 and 2 consecutively.

The residents will attend a support session and a subsequent, tailor made action plan, providing targets and goals with the emphasis on employment and education. Every evening a staff member is available within the Phase 3 accommodation until the next morning for additional support if and when required.

During their spare time residents are encouraged to seek out voluntary or paid work, join social groups and progress towards their future.

Finally, the resident must attend a church of their choosing once a week and will be encouraged to establish themselves within the church.

That’s as far as the programme goes through the week. It is minimal if you would like it to be, and if a resident would like additional support that’s great too! We see this as a time for release not a time for more control, and very much a time for a resident to find out who he is again. Someone recently described this as;

“You help a resident get going, and you’re walking with them and supporting them, then running with them and encouraging them, then one day they will be running on fast enough and stable enough that you don’t need to be there to support them anymore”
