Resilient resettlement and community integration for ex-homeless people

Homelessness and supported housing agencies do a great job but no one would say that the current model of homelessness services is working perfectly. Rough sleeping is still too high and too many people fail to sustain their tenancies after moving on, returning to the street or temporary housing. This is also down to a lack of friendships and social networks outside of those established while being homeless.

Family and friends, and community involvement are important elements in leading a fulfilled, independent life, which are rarely part of the current mainstream approach of homelessness services.Yet, many towns across the country do have a rich mix of public activities, clubs and societies run by volunteers and local residents, which ex-homeless people could be a part of.

We are working together with the Tudor Trust to realise this ambition. The Trust has committed to giving small grants between £5,000 and £10,000 to homelessness agencies to establish new connections between ex-homeless people and their local community.
