Barrhead Housing Association introduces new Passport programme to help tackle homelessness in Scotland

A new initiative developed by the Barrhead Housing Association has seen staff go into schools in Barrhead to talk to young people about their options for housing when they leave school, as a drive to reduce homelessness across Scotland.

Funded by Scottish Government through the SFHA Scottish Homeless Prevention Passport, this initiative ‘The Tenancy Resettlement Programme’ was initially launched in Liverpool.  The aim of the programme is to educate young people about social housing, how to secure a tenancy in a social housing property and maintain their tenancy.
