News | Posted on Thursday 11 November 2021

The evaluation results strongly suggested that a Housing First model for care leavers is worthy of replication in other settings.

The research included a literature review, project monitoring, qualitative interviews with young people and staff and other key stakeholders involved in commissioning and delivery of the project.

The full report can be found here: Centrepoint - our research.

The evaluation demonstrated that the Housing First project was successfully supporting a highly vulnerable group of young care leavers to sustain their tenancies in the local community.

Despite the challenges of the pandemic and limited housing availability, the results strongly suggested that a Housing First model for care leavers is worthy of replication in other settings.
