Housing First Birmingham

HOUSING FI

The Cranstoun Housing First service supports entrenched rough sleepers in Birmingham to secure, settle into, and sustain their own accommodation in line with the principles of the Housing First model. Housing First believes that housing is a right, and views secure housing as a stable platform from which other issues can be addressed.

Cranstoun Housing First is delivered in partnership with Birmingham City Council and other Housing First providers.

Our support is intensive, flexible and holistic. Our Housing First navigators provide their interventions where they are needed across Birmingham, and for as long as the support is required.

Access to our Housing First service is via a panel-based referral service.
