Housing First Anglesey helps homeless people to find a permanent home quickly, providing ongoing support to help them settle in and maintain their new home. The project provides an intensive support package to actively address issues in a creative and innovative way.
The Housing First approach focuses on getting homeless people straight into their own accommodation – rather than finding temporary solutions (such as a hostel place) before permanent accommodation is sought. Once housed, support may involve help with accessing the right benefits, reducing levels of debt or rent arrears, understanding tenancy rights and obligations, or even accessing learning and employment opportunities.
Housing First Anglesey is available to both men and women who are homeless and aged 25 or above, who have no immediate access to settled accommodation and have support needs that can be met through housing related support. All clients have an agreed support plan and receive person-centred support from staff and volunteers. Housing First Anglesey is a flexible and responsive service, open 24/7, in response to individual clients needs to help achieve positive outcomes.
