Greater Manchester Housing First

The Greater Manchester Housing First pilot is one of three English pilots testing the model at scale with the intention of supporting 330 people into a home of their own and providing the wraparound support they need to sustain those tenancies. The three national pilots are being assessed by an independent consortium of researchers from the volunteer and academic sectors, to create a blueprint for future delivery of large-scale Housing First programmes in England.

The Greater Manchester pilot is a high-fidelity pilot and adheres to the seven principles that underpin the Housing First model. It is a partnership of 11 organisations including support providers and Mental health professionals, with a network of housing partners and third-party services across Greater Manchester to ensure the person has the choice over where they live and control over the services they receive.
