Test Two

What causes homelessness?

The biggest cause of homelessness amongst our residents is family breakdown and this year we have seen an increase in young people who have experienced domestic abuse, mental ill health and learning difficulties as well as a doubling of care leavers and refugees.

What is Complex Needs?

When a young person has two or more support needs in addition to homelessness they are at a much higher risk of self-destructive behaviours, losing their accommodation and falling into a cycle of homelessness. All complex needs cases this year had experienced social housing or childhood poverty.

What is Complex Need2s ?

In June 2017 we were awarded three years of funding for the complex needs worker post from The Henry Smith Charity. Our complex needs worker has contributed significantly in managing high risk/ high support cases by having dedicated time to address behaviour to prevent unplanned exits from the service. The duration of support varied between 41 to 101 days. We have also developed a robust response protocol amongst all staff for prevention of suicide and self-harm.
