Housing First Report

Housing First is an internationally recognised model of combatting long-term homelessness for people with complex needs that has shown very positive results. A Housing First service prioritises permanent housing for people experiencing homelessness from the outset that is entirely separated from any treatment supports that they might need. The intention is that housing should be available even if a person experiencing homelessness refuses treatment for their substance use or mental health issues and then a flexible support package covering mental health, substance use, employment and other issues is provided for the service users in their new home by a multi-disciplinary team. This is done with a view to reconnecting them to their community and ensuring stability in their accommodation.

Our Report on the Fidelity Assessment of Depaul Belfast and Derry/Londonderry Housing First Services was carried out on two Depaul Housing First Services and assesses how closely both of these services remain compliant to the original model of a Housing First service as originally developed by Dr Sam Tsemberis and colleagues at the Pathways to Housing National Organisation in New York, USA.
