Visual observations for homelessness prevention

The Problem

Lack of insight into vital 'in the home' information that can be combined with other known data (rent arrears, complaints etc.) to build an evidence based risk score for homelessness and help with support and prevention.

The Solution

Enabling frontline staff to capture visual observations on home visits (e.g. gas engineers, repairs staff) to identify people at risk of homelessness

Who It'll Help

Tenants, to get the right interventions and support to avoid homelessness. RPs, to reduce homelessness and voids. Councils, to reduce homelessness or increase prevention outcomes.

How It'll Help

By combining in the home data with other known data to create a rounded evidenced based picture of risk of homelessness and tenancy failure
