Tackling homelessness

With homelessness in Tameside and Greater Manchester at a record high, it is more important than ever that local authorities, housing providers and specialist service providers work together to provide innovative solutions to tackle homelessness and reduce the number of individuals and families who are sleeping rough or in temporary accommodation. 

Jigsaw Group currently runs two housing advice and homelessness contracts – in Knowsley and Tameside. In both these areas we work to preventing, wherever possible, homelessness occurring, but in those cases where it does, we provide a comprehensive assessment, support and resettlement service which is responsive to the needs of clients and is aimed at preventing re-occurrence of homelessness.

We also offer advice, information and assistance to households who are already homeless or are at risk of homelessness, including resettlement support for homeless households moving into a new tenancy.

Finally, we provide a range of supported accommodation units for single homeless people in Oldham in partnership with the local authority.

Here are some examples of recent contracts that we’ve been involved in.
