Resettling

Resettling aims to support people facing homelessness into long-term, sustainable housing

Block of flatsThe numbers of people living in temporary accommodation has been rising year on year, with an estimated 230,000 people in England now struggling to live without a secure home.

Temporary accommodation ranges from emergency BnB's to self contained flats, and overcrowding and disrepair are all too common. With rents high, unemployment on the rise and lack of supply of affordable housing to move on to, many families stay stuck in temporary accommodation far too long.

We developed Resettling to tackle the crisis in temporary accommodation, by proving intensive support to people with multi complex and connecting them to landlords who can provide them a secure home. We know that it can be a struggle to maintain a tenancy when money is tight and life is complex, so we support people to settle into a new home that meets their needs and we provide ongoing support to maintain the tenancy going forward. 

How it works

Stage 1: Enrolment onto the programme: We receive your referral from our partner organisation and carry out an initial assessment.  

Stage 2: Assignment of a dedicated support practitioner: Delivering holistic, person-centred support through our Resettling model throughout your journey to stable accommodation.  This include access to a range of local support services, tailored to your individual needs, such as: 

  • support with financial concerns and rent arrears 
  • education, training and employment opportunities 
  • advice for improved physical health and mental wellbeing 

 

Stage 3: The last stage focuses on sustainment of the tools and strategies developed during the programme to help participants sustain their tenancy and lead fulfilling, independent lives.  

What we offer: 

  • a dedicated support worker 
  • help to access local support services 
  • assistance in removing long-term barriers to housing

Our approach

Resettling aims to equip people with the tools and strategies to maintain independence and break out of the cycle of homelessness. 

Resettling is a holistic intervention that we designed to deliver for and with people who are facing homelessness, or are living in temporary accommodation, with the aim of supporting people into sustainable and independent housing.

We work with housing providers to secure affordable and suitable homes, while providing intensive, holistic support to equip people with the tools to manage tenancies independently and break the cycle of homelessness. Our dedicated support practitioners deliver holistic, wellbeing and practical support, including finding work and training opportunities, addressing personal and social barriers, support with managing tenancies and finances, and much more.
