Many supported housing residents worry about being able to move on

A new report from youth charity YMCA has found many residents in supported accommodation feel trapped in supported housing.

Eighty per cent said they are worried about the prospects of being able to find somewhere to live when they are ready to move on. And over half (56 per cent) said although they were ready to leave, they were currently unable to do so because of a range of reasons.

In response to the findings in the ‘Delayed until further notice’ report, the YMCA is calling on the government to implement five steps, which include creating a national ‘help to rent’ scheme and extending transitional support for those leaving supported accommodation.
