Residents get in the kitchen for home cooked meals
Published: 31 August 2022
Milestone House residents have been keeping busy in the kitchen as part of their support sessions.
They have been collecting ingredients with staff opening up the café for them to use this summer.
Team Leader Frankie Baker said: “We have been asking residents what sort of activities they would like to do for their support sessions and the majority of them wanted to cook, alongside their Support Workers to learn some independent skills.
“They’ve all wanted to keep busy, occupying their minds away from any addictions and feel more part of society.
“It’s also so important that our staff build that relationship by supporting them to achieve their goals.”
Milestone House provides emergency accommodation for single adults and couples without dependants. It's managed by Derby Homes and has 36 rooms for Derby’s homeless and rough sleepers. Referrals are coordinated by the Housing Options Team and the Move-on Coordinator.
