Description

The School was awarded a major research project to carry out an evaluation of

• the housing and support schemes funded by the Approved Development Programme (ADP) pilot for teenage mothers
• and the Safer Communities Supported Housing Fund (SCSHF).
The ADP pilot programmes cover a range of housing projects, funded through the Housing Corporation, which provide supported housing for teenage mothers.

The SCSHF funds housing and support for four key groups: vulnerable young people (including teenage parents and care leavers); drug and alcohol misusers; offenders and those at risk of offending; and survivors of domestic violence.

The evaluation assessed the effectiveness of provision funded under the two schemes in meeting the needs of service users and assessed how successful they were in achieving independence when they moved on. The findings informed a good practice guide on providing accommodation and support to these groups of service users, including specific advice on the use of floating support.
