Rapid Rehousing Pathway
Funded by The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) Emmanuel House is an integral partner in Nottingham City’s Rapid Rehousing Pathway (RRP) for rough sleepers. Our Supported Lettings worker provides flexible floating support in homes provided for people with a history of rough sleeping. This flexible support enables individuals to sustain their tenancies in homes across the housing sector. Our Navigator works with people who sleep rough to access the appropriate local services, get off the streets and into settled accommodation. The navigator work with a range of multidisciplinary teams and provide both navigation and co-ordination support, using strong local relationships, expertise and collective working.
The Nottingham Night Shelter and The Nottingham Winter Shelter are now an integral part of the plan to reduce homelessness in the city of Nottingham. The Shelter is now running for twelve months of the year, separated into two projects covering the summer and the winter period and currently supports two people each week out of rough sleeping into accommodation. We continue to explore new ways to engage people in our services, preventing people from becoming homeless in the first place and helping people confront the barriers that prevent them from moving from homelessness into resettlement.
Rough Sleeping Drop-In Sessions
Our Wellbeing Support Team and Rapid Rehousing Pathway Team are also involved in facilitating weekly rough sleeping drop-in sessions that take place at St Peter’s Church, Nottingham. Every Wednesday, a multi-agency open-access session provides breakfast and support to those sleeping rough. Alongside this, every Monday, the same session takes place, exclusively for females who are rough sleeping or staying in hostels and temporary accommodation. This provides females with a safe space to meet, away from a typically heavily male-dominated environment. The session provides breakfast, support, access to services and an opportunity to rest and relax. This session is has roughly 12 females per session who are fleeing from a variety of situations, including victims of sexual or domestic violence and feel unsafe in male-dominated services and environments.
