Event Details

An independent evaluation into the first Housing First project to be developed in the UK is published today.

Developed in the UK by Turning Point Scotland in response to high levels of repeat homelessness amongst people with active substance misuse problems in Glasgow. Research was undertaken by Dr Sarah Johnston and Prof Suzanne Fitzpatrick from Herriot Watt University as part of a wider piece of research comparing the results of Housing First services from a number of other European cities.  

The evaluation is extremely positive and this highlights a number of contributory factors which have helped achieve such positive outcomes.  The results points to Housing First as being a positive and cost effective model in tackling homelessness.

Turning Point Scotland would like you to register your interest in attending a half day seminar to discuss the evaluation,  to explore what factors make this model so successful, to share our experience from being involved with similar projects in other parts of the world and to explore how Housing First can be rolled out as a more mainstream option in the field of homelessness.

Turning Point Scotland

Turning Point Scotland has a long history of providing high quality social care services to a range of people across Scotland.

It does not subscribe to one existing model of service provision. Instead it operates in a person centred way by growing and developing services to suit individual needs.

This is done by consulting with service users and involving them in key decisions on a range of issues governing their support.
