Housing First

Find a service:

The Housing First team work closely with landlords and the local authority to help people find a permanent home quickly – rather than finding temporary solutions (such as a hostel place) – in Swansea.

Ongoing support is then put in place to help them settle in and maintain their new home.

The project provides help with issues beyond housing,such as:

  • Budgeting
  • Benefits
  • Employment
  • Mental health
  • Substance use

Support should be based around a person’s strengths rather than their problems, with services working proactively to encourage engagement in other areas.

  • Housing is a human right
  • Service users should have choice and control
  • Housing is not conditional on support or treatment
  • Support is recovery oriented
  • Support focuses on harm reduction
  • Active engagement without coercion
  • Planning is person-centred
  • Flexible support is available, as long as required

Swansea Housing First is a partnership between Kaleidoscope, The Wallich and Swansea Council.
