Shelter’s Housing Support Service in HMPYOI Polmont

Please note that The Robertson Trust has published its new Giving Strategy. This sets out the priorities we will have when awarding funds through our open grants programme. The existing application form and guidelines can still be used until July 31st. In line with our existing procedures, we will aim to assess and present all applications received by this date to our September Board meeting. In the event that we are unable to do so, your application may be held until our November meeting. In such cases a member of staff will contact you and provide any assistance required to realign your application with the new Giving Strategy. Find out all you need to know here.

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.
