Relationship-based approaches

An overview of some relationship-based approaches. 

In recent years the sector has seen an introduction of a number of innovative approaches to supporting people who are experiencing homelessness; Psychologically Informed Environments, Trauma Informed Care, Housing First and strengths-based working to name a few. These are all different types of relationship-based approaches (we previously described them as positive approaches).

But how do these approaches compare with each other? Are they similar or different? Which one should you adopt, or should you adopt them all? It is sometimes difficult to tell between the different approaches and decide on which one is best to use with the people you support.

More information on these different approaches can be found in the resource library.
