People who have experienced homelessness can face numerous financial and personal barriers in finding – and sustaining – a tenancy. For young people leaving care and those who have spent prolonged periods sleeping rough or in temporary accommodation, the transition to independent living – and taking on new responsibilities – can be an anxious and confusing time.
In collaboration with our charity partner Crisis, Homes for Cathy is running a FREE best practice workshop focusing on tenancy training. The workshop will explore the positive outcomes tenancy training can have, not only for people who have experienced homelessness or are at risk of homelessness, but also for social landlords who are keen to reduce the social and financial impact of interventions and prevent future homelessness.
We look forward to welcoming:
- Peter Harrison and Pilar Lara Cruz from Crisis to talk about the Crisis ‘Renting Ready’ programme, a unique tenancy training course designed for homeless people, those at risk of homelessness, and those with limited experience of independent living.
- Guest speakers from a local authority and housing association to discuss the benefits of delivering ‘Renting Ready’ training for their tenants and service users.
The workshop will culminate in a breakout room discussion and feedback on what good tenancy training looks like and an opportunity to network with like-minded providers.
We welcome attendees from housing associations, local authorities and charities who are interested in gaining and sharing knowledge on innovative and actionable solutions to ending homelessness.
