Christchurch Housing Society are delighted to announce the appointment of Sharon Hemmingfield as our Community Chaplain. Having spent time working for Social Services in several fields such as family support, antisocial behaviour and domestic violence, she is well equipped to assess our residents needs and then identify a support plan. If you feel that yourself or a loved one living within one of our flats would benefit from her services, please do contact our Housing Officers who will put forward your/their name.
Once referred to Sharon she would phone the resident before visiting face to face where an assessment of needs would be identified. This could cover a range of things such as:
• Debt and financial support
• Hoarding and attachment
• Mental health
• Emotional needs
• Networking with social groups
• Administration support and access to a computer
• NHS and health services
• Food banks
• Bereavement services
Sharon will help to locate and identify local services who can offer much needed support. This brilliant service is complimentary to all of our residents and Sharon is more than happy to offer as much or as little guidance as felt necessary.
