Moving to Causeway House

If you are pregnant or have a young child, are homeless or living in unsuitable accommodation, we may be able to help.

Anyone considering moving into Causeway must be referred to the Manager by an appropriate local agency such as a Doctor, Health Visitor, Social Security, Children's Services, a Social Worker or another agency. You will need to speak with one of these agencies about Causeway first.

When we receive a referral we will invite you to Causeway House to look around and to meet the Manager to discuss your needs. Together you will then decide if Causeway is right for you. It might not be an appropriate place for you if you cannot live independently or you are unable to support yourself financially.

Initially, a contract for a six month stay is arranged. It is possible to extend this period up to a maximum of 18 months. Rooms may be available immediately, but sometimes there may be a delay.

Residential qualifications are not necessary, however, if a person has very recently arrived in Jersey, Causeway might not be appropriate unless she is able to support herself financially.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept people who were already pregnant when they arrived in Jersey to live.

Occasionally, we are able to offer accommodation to mothers with more than one child. Exceptions are possible under extreme circumstances.
