Launch announces innovative partnership approach to homelessness prevention

Key partners EHAP, Cyrenians HPS, City of Edinburgh Council SW Neighbourhood Office, Prospect Community Housing and Dunedin Canmore Housing Association gathered at Wester Hailes Library on 29th April to launch the new initiative.

The Rent Arrears Early Intervention Initiative will be promoted to all social tenants and private tenants in South West Edinburgh initially. It is anticipated that lessons learned from the pilot will then be applied to the set-up of similar partnerships in other areas of the city.

All partners have expressed high hopes for the service which incorporates a new joined up approach to preventative housing advice and support aimed at helping people to keep their homes.

To receive further information or to make a referral please contact the EHAP Administrator on 0845 302 4607 or contact us.
