Starting in July 2015, Shelter has provided a dedicated housing support service for young men at HMPYOI Polmont, funded by The Robertson Trust.
The project had three elements:
- The provision of housing advice and guidance (casework)
- The delivery of life skills to groups of young men
- Improving the knowledge and awareness of housing issues among SPS and partners’ staff
This report presents the findings of an evaluation of the service, carried out by Reid-Howie Associates in April and May 2017.
