Kineara 2022 Impact Report_final

 

 

We’re happy to share our Impact Report 2022, which collates the results of our latest evaluation of our programmes. This year Kineara celebrates 10 years of impact in our organisation.

Since our last report, we have began a new housing support project for private renters, and continued to deliver bespoke, holistic support to young pupils in school in Tower Hamlets.  Since 2020, we had to adapt our services to be able to continue to support families who were vulnerable during lockdowns, especially with services thin on the ground. To respond to the crisis facing renters, we’re proud to have been delivering the Southwark Private Renters Project since 2020 with our fantastic partners and funders.

We thank everyone who has joined Kineara on its journey over the last 10 years.

Covid Private Renters Project – Aug 2021

The Covid Private Renters Project aims to tackle rising housing insecurity and evictions of renters in the private sector. Using wraparound, holistic support that has been the hallmark of Kineara’s services, the project aimed to provide advice and support to low-income renters facing a threat of eviction. It is modelled on Kineara’s intensive Rent Support Programme which had been delivered with successful outcomes to social sector tenants between 2012 and 2016.

When the Covid 19 pandemic began in early 2020, we wanted to respond to the possible impact of both the pandemic and the restrictions on those already most economically and socially vulnerable. We also became concerned, as did many across the housing sector, that the Government’s moratorium on evictions, announced in March 2020,would end in September that year with a flood of possession notices for renters whose incomes had been affected by the pandemic or who otherwise had been unable to keep up with rent.

This evaluation is an opportunity to share progress, outcomes and learnings so far, along with case studies and future plans for the project. With thanks to our partners, Southwark Law Centre, Southwark Council’s Private Rented Sector Team and Impact on Urban Health.

Covid Private Renters Project Half Way Review

Since November 2020, we have been supporting private renters in Southwark to avoid eviction and overcome barriers to housing stability. The Covid Private Renters Project is based on our Rent Support Programme Plus and was developed to offer immediate, intensive support to renters facing eviction or insecure tenancies. We have proudly partnered with Southwark Law Centre to provide both legal, practical and emotional support services, working alongside Southwark Council’s Private Rented Sector Team’s housing officers to make sure no households in Southwark are pushed into homelessness.

Our half way review, written in March, is our opportunity to share progress, insights, learnings, and future plans for the project. With thanks to Impact on Urban Health for providing the funding for this work.

Impact-Report_FINAL_2019-1

Each year, we are committed to providing a report into our impact and our progress towards our key aims and mission. We are happy to share with you our Impact Report 2019, which collates the results from this year’s internal evaluation of our programmes.

2018 was a pivotal year for our organisation, with a new housing programmes as well as additional school services that have expanded our reach and provided school essential wraparound support.

We have made many new friends over the last year whose support has made an unmeasurable difference to the growth of our organisation. We feel very proud to be part of a network of like-minded individuals and organisations who are so committed to making a difference in people’s lives, and we thank everyone who has been a part of our journey so far.

Our Impact Report

For a growing social business like ours, tracking our progress and monitoring our impact has been one of our biggest challenges.

So last year, we embarked on an evaluation process of all our programmes, and put together this Impact Report which collates all of the best of our work from the last few years.

It was powerful for us to take stock of just how far we’ve come and we’re incredibly proud of what we have achieved with the residents we’ve worked with, as well as our partnerships which have been growing in strength.

Thank you to everyone who has been part of Kineara’s journey. We wouldn’t be here without you, and we continue to work with you to make the lives of the people we work with more supported, more stable, and more resilient.
