Pathways – clarifying responses for residents who are homeless or at risk of homelessness

Pathways – clarifying responses for residents who are homeless or at risk of homelessness

This work is part of Newcastle’s Council’s overall effort to develop a consistent thread from the identification of need, to assessment, to response (pathways), to monitoring, to reviewing and then policy development and resource allocation.

Purpose

In this project, the term ‘pathways’ refers to how Newcastle Council respond to those residents who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Essentially, how do they identify someone threatened with homelessness oractually homeless? what steps do they take to respond? and who carries out the different stages of the response?

This project seeks to identify, clarify, and refine the pathways for residents in Newcastle who are either homeless or at risk of homelessness. In its broadest form, the task is to consolidate our responses to homelessness (and the threat of homelessness) into a form which is clear and understandable to practitioners and residents.

The objectives of the project are to:

• consolidate responses to homelessness (and the threat of homelessness) into pathways which align to the key causes of homelessness in Newcastle

• map the ordering of responses within each pathway and clarify the roles and responsibilities of different services within each ‘pathway’ of response to identify gaps in continuity for residents

• collate useful information on each ‘pathway’ of response

• clarify the extent of use, understanding, and perceptions of effectiveness and ease of use amongst frontline practitioners

• integrate this into an accessible and navigable resource for practitioners, with residents in mind
