Wirral Council wishes to appoint an organisation/s to deliver safe and stable supported housing service/s for homeless young people aged 18-24 years.
A key principle of Wirral Council’s plan: A 2020 Vision is that Wirral should be a place where vulnerable people feel safe and protected and that good quality housing, including specialist housing solutions such as supported living accommodation, is available to those who need it.
The key focus of Wirral Council and its partners is to prevent homelessness wherever possible, with recognition that in those instances where this cannot be achieved then appropriate housing with support is available. The needs of homeless people in Wirral have changed significantly in recent years and we are now seeing increased numbers of rough sleepers, increasing demand for supported housing services and increasing numbers of young homeless people that present with multiple and complex support need. Consequently, there remains a need for specific services to prevent and resolve homelessness for young people.
