Welfare Reform and the increased cost of living have made sustaining a tenancy increasingly challenging. For vulnerable people who may already be facing issues around homelessness, substance misuse, mental health and other health issues, these challenges can be particularly acute. This new member roundtable takes place on Monday, July 10th from 10am to 12pm.

Tenancy failure can cost tenants and their families a great deal financially and while most housing providers now have processes in place to identify tenants who may be vulnerable, what support can be put in place to put them in the strongest possible position to sustain their tenancies?

The Resettlement Passport has been developed by the charity Local Solutions, through investment from First Ark Group.  It is an online and offline tenancy skills course endorsed by nine housing associations and developed with the aim of reducing tenancy breakdowns among vulnerable groups.  Already being used by a wide range of organisations, the course is now being piloted by several housing providers with prospective tenants who are identified as potentially vulnerable.

The NHC would like to invite its members to this free focused session facilitated by Hannah McCowen, Resettlement Passport Co-ordinator from Local Solutions and Chris Cheng, Welfare Reform Officer from Regenda Group to:

  • Discuss the issues that vulnerable people face in sustaining a tenancy
  • Get an overview of the Resettlement Passport, the story and impact so far and potential use by housing providers
  • Hear about how Regenda is using Resettlement Passport in its pilot project
  • Share good practice and other success stories around supporting vulnerable tenants
