The Falcon Centre is the largest project and acts as the hub for Falcon Support Services. Since opening in 2013 it has provided vulnerable people with their own en-suite room, a communal area and catered accommodation.

The Falcon Centre is staffed 24/7, to ensure that we can meet the needs. As well as providing accommodation, the centre hosts a number of social activities including cooking workshops, Lifewise training sessions on tenancy management, quiz nights, art and craft sessions, pool competitions and film nights.

Those looking for a bed in the Falcon Centre must be over 18 years old, single, have a local connection to Leicestershire and not be owed a homeless duty by the local authority.

Service users receive:

  • An allocated support worker 
  • Use of the Homeless Outcomes Star to enable service users to create their own personalised support and action plan
  • Referrals and signposting to appropriate agencies
  • Access to a substance misuse worker, alcohol reduction programme and support groups
  • Safe and secure temporary accommodation
  • Assistance finding alternative accommodation
  • Support to integrate into their communities, including access to community projects, such as our community drop in, and other social activities…
  • CCTV in communal areas
  • Multi-site warden available
