We continue to support people living in temporary accommodation through:
by working with landlords and accommodation providers to improve living conditions and facilities, engaging with decision / policy makers to bring about change for residents, and using their experiences to inform policy changes.
by providing guidance on what their next steps away from homelessness should be, clarity on what their housing options are, and shaping a plan to help them secure permanent residence.
by facilitating improvements to their mental and physical health, encouraging better access to GP appointments, prescriptions and medication, and connecting them to local support services.
In 2018/2019, we helped 157 individuals engage with healthcare services and maintain their overall health & wellbeing.
In 2018, we produced a report that unveiled an estimated B&B population of 51,500 households, which is 10x the government estimate.
In 2019, we helped 176 people in Brighton move towards independent living following engagement with our services.
