Kineara launched a licensed version of our innovative Rent Support Programme last week at a summer brunch and information day at our offices in Tower Hamlets. We had a great day, thank you all who came to hear about our work!
The Rent Support Programme (RSP), which has been running for three years, is a 10 week intensive intervention that provides tailored one-to-one support for vulnerable residents in social housing. Designed for the hardest to reach residents, the programme has had a 96% success rate in avoiding rent arrear evictions.
The event brought together representatives from housing providers from across London and the south east and gave attendees an opportunity to understand how the programme achieves its successes. Those who attended included representatives from Notting Hill Housing, East Thames Housing, and Poplar HARCA, which Kineara has worked with closely and which recently received an award for Outstanding Landlord of the Year. They were given an insight into how family intervention practices, which the RSP is based on, can provide the necessary integrated and holistic support vulnerable residents require to get to root cause of their debt.
Feedback from those who attended the event
It should have been longer!
It was great to hear from those who benefitted from the scheme and from the partners.
