Together Alliance: Housing solutions report

The Together Alliance (a coalition of housing associations and youth homelessness charities) have released a new report: Housing Solutions for Young People Experiencing Homelessness.

It was collaborative project developed and shaped by the participating housing associations from the Housing Association’s Youth Network (HAYN) and the youth charities of the London Youth Gateway (LYG) working alongside young people who have experienced homelessness and supported by The Berkeley Foundation and Fusion 21.

The Alliance commissioned Campbell Tickell to carry out an action research project aimed  at informing how to best collaboratively tackle the needs of young people experiencing homelessness, or who at risk of homelessness and are housing association tenants.

Outcomes

This report, developed in collaboration with young people and cross sector partners, details three sustainable housing projects to prevent and respond to youth homelessness:

  • Project 1 – Someone to talk to: To prevent young people who are housing association tenants from becoming homeless by having processes and/or people in their organisations that can support young people’s tenancy sustainment. This project will be led by the housing association members of the alliance.
  • Project 2 – Some support to pay: To support young people while they are experiencing homelessness the alliance wants to create a flexible funding pot of money that can be distributed directly and swiftly to assist with immediate needs. This project will be led by the youth homelessness charity members of the alliance.
  • Project 3 – Somewhere to stay: To provide young people with a good next step once they leave emergency accommodation by making underused housing stock available to support young people who are experiencing homelessness. This will be a joint project.
