Provide housing for people who are homeless and preventing homelessness from occurring again. They explain to tenants that if they can demonstrate the ability to maintain a tenancy in a responsible way, the door to a permanent home will open up for them in the not to distant future. A stay in Self Help accommodation provides homeless people with the opportunity to demonstrate that past issues have been addressed and that they can now sustain tenancy.
They provide advice, assistance and advocacy in dealing with various benefits agencies, liaising with the local authority and social landlords, housing register applications, regular house visits and making sure staff are always accessible and willing to help.
In return, they expect tenants to fulfil their responsibilities to prevent any lapse back into homelessness. This means engaging with support workers, paying the rent and bills and acting responsibly in relation to their home.
When a person is ready for a move to permanent housing, Housing Officers liaise with the local authority and Registered Social Landlords to obtain permanent offer of housing. On average, 70% of the people they house move on in a planned way.
