  • Young people between the age of 16-18 in need of housing and support services to prevent homelessness and reoffending

 

 

Description:

First Base has created the Joint Working Procedure and Protocol which seeks to prevent homelessness of young people leaving custody or on community orders. The Joint Working Procedure and Protocol strives for early identification of those at risk of homelessness, it explains the process of joint working arrangements and how organisations cooperate when identifying and assessing young people’s housing and support needs.

The procedure provides a clear explanation of relevant legislation and where responsibilities lie between organisations. The procedure ensures that services work together to identify the risks and needs of the young person and build a package of support with an agreed plan. This involves supporting the young person and their family to return home safely or looking at alternative accommodation options with a support package to meet their needs.
