Offering a property to someone who has experienced homelessness is not just about providing walls and a roof, it’s about helping people to create a home and furniture and flooring is a vital part of this.

Evidence shows that buying essential items for a property can push people moving away from homelessness into greater financial hardship – and put their tenancy at risk as a result.  Moreover, going without basic items such as carpets, beds and white goods negatively impacts on tenants’ wellbeing, and makes them more likely to abandon a property.

Our free online workshop will explore the social impact argument and business case around Homes for Cathy Commitment #7 ‘to ensure that properties offered to homeless people are ready to move into’, with guest speakers from Karbon Homes and End Furniture Poverty.
