The Resettlement Passport is a tenancy skills course, delivered by Local Solutions, designed to improve the skills and confidence of vulnerable people, taking on a tenancy – it is available online and offline.
Developed by staff working with homeless young people from Local Solutions' homelessness services, the course is now being used by housing associations, leaving care teams, hostels, mental health services and a youth offending service.
The course is made up of 10 units, covering areas key to sustaining a tenancy. It is fully up to date with sections on Universal Credit, Sanctions and a focus on being 'shared-tenancy ready.'
Young and vulnerable people face significant challenges in setting up their own homes and maintaining their tenancies. The course was developed to be a preventative tool with the aim of reducing tenancy breakdowns which are costly to an individual’s wellbeing and are also hugely costly financially to housing associations and to society.
Speak to your Housing Advisor for more information regarding the Resettlement Passport.
