Homeless Pathways

Infographic for Homeless Pathways

The mixed homelessness pathway is one of four accommodation pathways for people recovering from homelessness.  Four partner agencies provide services these are, Riverside, St Mungo’s, Places for People and Second Step.  The pathway aims are to:


  • Reduce the number of people sleeping rough.
  • Reduce the need for spot purchased emergency accommodation.
  • Provide the right type of accommodation for people once they have become homeless.
  • Improve the numbers of people moving successfully out of the pathway into sustainable living.
  • Reduce repeat incidences of homelessness, including amongst people with complex needs.
  • Help people to gain the skills to prevent them becoming homeless again.
  • Build resilience and help people access training/employment.


The mixed homeless pathway provides services for men and women aged 22+, including

couples, but without dependent children. The pathway will provide short-term accommodation with appropriate housing management and support to help people leave supported housing and  move into sustainable alternative accommodation.
