NHYC and Network Homes are very proud to announce that our joint accommodation scheme Project Vista is expanding following a successful first phase!
Project Vista provides affordable rooms in flats provided by Network Homes housing association to homeless young people who are working, in training or education. Residents can stay for up to one year and are given targeted support during this time by our Education, Employment and Training and Independent Living Skills programmes.
The expansion see two more flats added to the two already established and brings the total number of homeless young people who can benefit from these homes to 20.
Funded by London Housing Foundation the idea behind the project is to provide a stable home to allow young people to focus on improving their employment situation, save money for a deposit and develop independent living skills. This has been born out by the first phase in 2016 which saw all residents able to either take on extra work hours, accept promotions, or to maintain or take jobs they would otherwise have lost due to not having permanent place to live.
We couldn't be happier with how Project Vista has developed so far and look forward to helping many more vulnerable young people create positive futures through this innovative partnership.
