Two housing associations sign up to tenancy skills course

Two housing associations, including one from Scotland, have signed up to a tenancy skills course created by Liverpool based charity, Local Solutions.

Resettlement Passport is designed to improve the skills and confidence of vulnerable people taking on a tenancy. It aims to reduce tenancy breakdowns which are costly to individuals’ wellbeing as well as financially costly to housing associations and society.

Regenda Homes have decided to run a pilot of the offline version whilst Caledonia Housing Association, which is based in Dundee, has purchased the online version which was recently launched thanks to investment from One Ark. 15 organisations - including mental health services, leaving care teams, youth offending services and hostels - are already using the course, however, Regenda and Caledonia are the first two housing associations to get involved. Hannah McCowen, Resettlement Passport Co-ordinator, said, “This is brilliant news for Resettlement Passport. It’s great to see some housing associations making use of this amazing resource and we hope more follow in their footsteps. Thank you to Regenda and Caledonia.”
