The most common factor among young adults who re-offend after leaving prison is homelessness or unstable accommodation, as over 50% of released prisoners are unable to return to their previous home.
56% of young people with care experience were more likely to be concerned about not having a stable or safe place to stay. In addition, they were twice as likely to be very unsatisfied with their housing situation care experience.
Research shows around a third of care leaves end up homeless at some point within the first 2 years of leaving care.
For many young people, the transition to independent living is not only a difficult journey but the resources are also limited to enable this. We work with vulnerable young people, young offenders and care leavers from local authority care and support.
Our service offers bridging as well as long term accommodation in order to meet a variety of housing support needs. All our tenants are supported by fully trained key workers during their stay.
