Liverpool City Region has made it a priority to tackle homelessness in a new way, based on international evidence. Housing First believes having a decent roof over your head is a necessity so it provides a home as the first response. It then offers people with multiple and complex needs individualised support with issues such as addictions, mental and physical health and the effects of trauma and abuse. Housing First works in partnership with the six local authorities making up the city region, housing associations and other homeless organisations. Essential to the success of the programme is to involve the people we support in every part of the process and our Lived Experience group, which brings together people with their own experiences of homelessness helps shape our work in this area.Visit Housing First
