The Resettlement Passport is a tenancy skills course designed to improve the skills and confidence of vulnerable people, taking on a tenancy.
Developed by staff working with homeless young people from Local Solutions' homelessness services, the course is now being used by mental health services, leaving care teams, youth offending services and hostels.
The course is made up of 10 units, covering areas key to sustaining a tenancy. It is fully up to date with sections on Universal Credit and Sanctions.
The course is available in an offline version and now thanks to investment from One Ark, in an online version.
Young and vulnerable people face significant challenges in setting up their own homes and maintaining their tenancies. The course was developed to be a preventative tool with the aim of reducing tenancy breakdowns which are costly to an individual’s wellbeing and are also hugely costly financially to housing associations and to society. Successful tenancies are key to long-term stability for vulnerable clients and provide the basis for them to engage with education, training and employment.
The Resettlement Passport team are pleased to offer sale of the online and offline courses, staff training and the delivery of financial inclusion workshops.
