Housing First

Who's it for?

The aim of Housing First is to successfully support people with repeat histories of homelessness, who experience multiple disadvantages, into independent and stable accommodation.

It is for adults of working age and is a partnership between Bradford Council and Bridge. A complex housing needs panel meets on a monthly basis to try to reach a solution for people’s housing needs.

Bridge delivers the support arm of the service in partnership with housing providers.
