The Crossings is a new state of the art hostel which opened in September 2011.
Situated on Great Union Street, The Crossings provides temporary accommodation for forty-six people at any one time and is one of the country’s first pioneering training and enterprise centres. The £5million centre offers facilities including an IT suite, employment and education services, a multi-gym, treatment rooms and a social enterprise café. Many of these services are open to the local community too.
The Crossings is the result of a partnership between Riverside ECHG, HULLHARP, Hull City Council, the Homes and Communities Agency, Hull Health Authority and the Hull Hostel Forum’s Independent Living Skills Project.
Places of Change is a government initiative to replace outdated hostels with modern inspiring buildings and with highly trained and motivated staff to deliver enganging activities in order to help homeless people in Hull transform their lives.
