Research findings show that the “Housing Led” model is particularly successful with long term homeless individuals that have a history of mental health difficulties and drug/alcohol misuse. This model is also the policy which the Government is committed to in terms of its housing strategy. The model involves providing intensive supports to individuals after they have secure tenancy. Evidence suggests this is the most successful and cost effective model and context for addressing the mental health needs of individuals. It is recommended that the SRF purposefully targets opportunities for providing mental health supports for individuals who have recently secured tenancy arrangements. These individuals due to mental health and addiction problems often struggle to secure and maintain tenancy. This stream will seek proposals from service providers who are working to implement housing first type solutions.
