Swansea Shoreline is a specialist accommodation project that provides long-term supported accommodation to homeless adults who are either alcohol dependent or experience significant problems with alcohol.
The project is “wet” meaning residents can continue to drink in their accommodation. By providing residents with a safe environment and the support of knowledgeable and experienced staff, the project can assist residents in the process of change and the modification of their behaviors. Making residents more aware of the options, opportunities and choices available to them enables them to make informed choices for themselves.
Options include controlled drinking, reduced drinking or stopping drinking – but the project is also designed to support those for whom this is not an option, either in the long or short term.
Staff at the project also assist residents in addressing their individual support needs – such as accessing and liaising with healthcare services, benefits agencies and housing providers – and improving the residents’ personal life skills so they are more independent and able to look after themselves.
Though the project is “wet” the working ethos and philosophy of the project results in a large proportion of residents drinking less and moderating their drinking behaviours.
