Rebuilding Shattered Lives

Someone who has been rough sleeping faces many challenges.

Framework’s Building Better Futures campaign is a major initiative to have a transformative impact on the lives of homeless people with the greatest needs.

This new approach provides stable housing and sustained support that is individually tailored to help people with the most complex needs – not only arising from extended periods of rough sleeping but also drug and alcohol abuse, imprisonment, mental health difficulties and abuse.

Housing First is a simple idea now being widely adopted across the UK and elsewhere: give someone their own place and provide intensive and bespoke support, care and treatment as needed.

The Opportunity Nottingham service managed by Framework for people with multiple and complex needs has successfully piloted the Housing First approach – more than 80% of residents remain in their flats after a year.

Framework plans 200 units of Housing First accommodation in the next five years across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and Sheffield.

We are launching our Building Better Futures campaign this month to raise the £3,000,000 needed to transform the lives of people like Colin. We welcome your support.
