Housing First England

Housing First England is a new project to create and support a national movement of Housing First services, improving the lives of, and support for, some of society’s most excluded people.

Visit the new Housing First England website

We have now launched the Housing First England website to bring together the most practical and up to date information and resources on Housing First, and to share the stories of residents, which demonstrate the real impact of this accommodation model. Visit hfe.homeless.org.uk to find out more.

Get involved

We are keen to hear from you, whether you are already delivering Housing First in England, or in the stages of planning a new project - or if you are generally interested in being involved.

Housing First England is made possible with funding from Lankelly Chase and Comic Relief.

Housing First in England - The Principles

We have developed the principles required for commissioning, designing and delivering a Housing First service in England, to support a national Housing First movement and ensure that positive client outcomes are achieved.
