Bristol Homeless Pathway

Second Step leads the homeless pathway for both men and women (the mixed pathway), working with Riverside, St Mungo’s and Places for People. The pathway is one of four accommodation pathways in Bristol to help people who have been homeless to find a home.

The mixed pathway runs services for men and women over the age of 22 including couples, but without dependent children and provides short-term accommodation with appropriate support to help people move on and become more independent.

Together the pathway partners aim to:

  • Reduce the number of people sleeping rough
  • Reduce the need for emergency accommodation
  • Provide the right type of accommodation
  • Increase the numbers of people moving successfully out of the pathway into sustainable living
  • Reduce the number of people who become homeless again and again, including people with complex needs
  • Help people to gain the skills to keep their tenancies
  • Build confidence and resilience to help people get back into training or employment.

The mixed homeless pathway runs services for men and women over the age of 22 including couples, but without dependent children and provides short-term accommodation with appropriate support to help people move on and become more independent.

 

All referrals to the pathway are made via Bristol City Council’s homelessness prevention team. More information can be found on the Bristol City Council website.
