The Key Step scheme provides holistic support for people who may be homeless or faces the threat of homelessness, thanks to funding from the Department of Communities and Local Governments' (DCLG) homelessness prevention programme.
Thirteen is working in partnership with, and managing referrals from, Middlesbrough, Stockton-On-Tees, Hartlepool, Redcar & Cleveland and Darlington Councils to deliver a more targeted approach to preventing homelessness.
The team identifies people at risk of homelessness as early as possible and improves their lives by offering advice, support and opportunities from finding a job or a home, to building their resilience and independence.
This innovative support will enable people to take greater control of their lives. It will be managed by Thirteen Contracts Manager Karen Kenmare.
Ian Wardle, chief executive at Thirteen, said: "It is important that people at risk of homelessness are given the help and support they need as soon as possible.
"This approach will not only address residents' housing related problems, but it will also help to build their resilience and overcome barriers to finding work and financial stability.
"Thirteen already has a strong record in successfully delivering homeless support services, and we will draw and build on this experience for the benefit of a wider group of people.”
