Supported by English Government funding, Crisis enabled 153 local housing advice projects help 8,123 single homeless people make a home in the private rented sector. The real mark of success is ensuring people settle into their new homes. To date 90 per cent managed their tenancies for at least six months. In Scotland, supported by Scottish Government funding, Crisis supported 28 schemes to create 2,675 tenancies for homeless people.
After the chaos and stress of homelessness, tenants often struggle to find and secure a property. Local projects we support help tenants and landlords navigate finding, setting up and sustaining a tenancy – from quality checks to financial issues including deposits and benefits. Most importantly they help develop relationships between landlords and tenants, ensuring tenancies are sustained.
