Salt Care have a variety of services that work together seamlessly to provide a holistic ‘wrap around’ approach to addressing the needs in our community.

Salt Assisted Housing

Salt Assisted Housing provides a safe haven for people who are transitioning from crisis accommodation to independent living. We offer a tiered support system to guests for a short, medium, or long term period of time, dependent on individual needs. Each individual or family is pastorally supported and cared for and connected to the broader Salt Community.
