St. Anne’s was founded in 1971 as a shelter for homeless men in Leeds. From these small beginnings it has gradually expanded over the years to become the organisation it is today, with around 1,500 staff supporting people across the North of England.
We are proud to support people with learning disabilities, mental health, substance misuse and homelessness issues and to help them achieve their aspirations.
We provide housing- and accommodation-based support in partnership with other housing providers and deliver a range of community-based services across the North of England.
Much of our work is undertaken in partnership with local authority adult social care departments, clinical commissioning groups and community safety partnerships. We also work extensively with people whose support is funded via a Direct Payment or an individual service fund (ISF).
Our current offer includes:
- Supported living services
- Residential care, including nursing care
- Specialist detoxification and rehabilitation (alcohol and substance misuse)
- Respite care
- Domiciliary care

This range of provision means that if people’s needs and goals change they can continue to be supported by St. Anne’s.
Continuing to focus on the needs of the people we support, we:
- Develop services where we know they are needed.
- Focus on continuous improvement and demonstrating value for money.
- Regularly review our services with the people we support and work together to meet changing needs.
