‘A Time 2 Mend’ is a unique project which provides focussed mediation and support to young people and their families to help reduce youth homelessness. It also helps young new tenants to maintain family support when moving in to their first home.
The project is a result of effective partnership working, and could be easily replicated in other local authorities with the same positive results. This proactive approach to tackling and preventing homelessness has delivered the ambitious outcomes the council set out to achieve, and the focus on early intervention and homeless prevention is helping to reduce the long term demand and costs for services.
