Housing First Procurement

Decision is required following a comprehensive procurement exercise, the existing provision will expire June 30th and a contract to ensure continuity of services is needed.

DHLUC have requested that we deliver a high-fidelity Housing First project as part of 3 national Housing First pilots. There is an MOU between GMCA and DHLUC.

Preventing and relieving Homelessness is a Mayoral and national government priority.

The service will support an anticipated further 48 individuals at risk of homelessness and rough sleeping especially those who are already excluded from ABEN helping to reduce the number of rough sleepers in Greater Manchester and prevent them from returning to the streets.

The learning from the pilot will inform the work to prevent homelessness in the future and inform commissioning of homelessness services across Greater Manchester to more effectively support individuals experiencing homelessness.
