Kent House is a well-proportioned mid terrace house that comprises five bedrooms and is divided across 3 levels.

Wellness Housing Officers are on site Monday to Friday from 10:00 – 11:30 (exc. Bank Holidays). They offer enhanced housing management services, e.g. tenancy sustainment, benefits advice, budgeting and payment of tenancy related bills. Staff is able to signpost clients to other relevant agencies that do not relate to housing management and assist them with carrying out the tasks associated with living in a communal home environment and in maintaining holistic wellbeing.

All clients throughout QVT have telephone access to our 24hr scheme at Verdant Lane SE6. There is also an out-of-hours on call manager to assist and support staff and clients in times of urgency.

Kent House offers supportive ‘family style’ accommodation with an emphasis on ‘normal living’. Each member of the household has their own comfortable room with private washroom facilities and share the communal areas including the lounge, large well equipped kitchen with their own lockable food cupboards, a bathroom with sink and toilet, a separate WC on the ground floor and a shower room on the top floor for shared use, a large comfortable dining area, and a large rear garden with garden furniture and a BBQ for shared use. Bedrooms are equipped with a bed, bedside table, wardrobe, and chest of drawers.

There is a comfortable lounge on the ground floor with sofas, chairs and an area by the window that overlooks the rear garden for sitting and dining. T.V. facilities are available as well as a computer with full internet access for clients use. A payphone is also available.
