Feel free to use any of our material but also address some of the assumptions - for example that this will will reduce homelessness; it did not in Wales so why should it in London and the rest of the country:
From the Shelter evaluation of the Welsh model 1 year on:
3. Not many people are being enabled to remain in their own home
When someone is threatened with homelessness, the first priority is usually to help them remain in their own home – if, of course, this is what the household wants. It turns out that remaining at home is only happening in a minority of cases. Fewer than one in four (23 per cent) of successful outcomes were because the household was able to remain at home.
So any success Wales had was because they have ample supply. Not to do with prevention...... what hope for London and high rent areas and short or no supply.
