Housesharing for young people to prevent homelessness

The Problem

How can we facilitate young people at risk of homelessness to be matched with flatmates in the private rental sector?

The Solution

Matching service for young people on social housing registers, aligning interests, areas and affordability. Supporting access for small groups into HMOs through rent deposit and sustainability with 'house coaches' to provide practical support where needed.

Who It'll Help

Young people, quality of life and reduced risk of homelessness. council services across the board - health, work, education, ASB

How It'll Help

By opening up access to a group who have very limited housing options due to low LHA shared rate and who are outside of the student housesharing bubble
