Splash Pilion Paint Project is a Social Enterprise:
“Resettlement services can help former homeless families and single people make an
effective transition to a new home. Homeless people often move into new properties
with few financial resources or personal possessions and may have lost contact with
friends, family and other social networks. Schemes that provide practical, emotional
and financial help, often combining support from paid staff and volunteers, have
proved successful in ensuring that tenancies do not break down. These schemes
should be as much part of Supporting People as a homelessness strategy.
The Government should consider the feasibility of targets that measure how effective
local services are at sustaining tenancies.”I Shelter.
