WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE
SUPPORTIVE LANDLOD MODEL ??
• Not all Landlord/Housing providers are the same.
• The decisions that a landlord makes determines if they stay housed
• Supportive landlords can act as a circuit breaker between someone
staying housed and/or being homeless.
• Supportive landlords provide a service that neither external support
providers or other kinds of landlords can provide.
• There is a cost to delivering a supportive landlord service.
• There is a cost to community of not doing this.
• Housing First models need to sit alongside Supportive Landlord
services to ensure people stay housed over the long term of their
accommodation and recovery journeys.
