DASH (Durham Action on Single Housing)

We are an independent charity that provides accommodation with support to people who are homeless or are about to become homeless.

We have been making a positive intervention on single homelessness for 45 years. We do this through:

• A provision of Supported Housing
• A project specifically for vulnerable women facing multiple complex needs
• Enhanced housing management services
• The provision of affordable shared housing for homeless people and people in housing need
