II.2.4) Description of the procurement

In recent years Edinburgh has seen a decline in the number of households being assessed as homeless or threatened with homelessness. This positive trend is attributed to the combined efforts of preventative support, housing and welfare advice, and the Housing Options approach. However, the scale and impact of homelessness in Edinburgh remains of concern to the Council.

This concern is significantly contributed to by the pressures on providing sufficient move-on accommodation in which homeless households may establish a settled home. These pressures stem from the impact of welfare reform and the availability of affordable housing in the City.

The Service shall achieve the following objectives.

Objective 1: Establish a financially viable service in Edinburgh which provides access to the PRS for households who are homeless or threatened with homelessness.

Objective 2: Contribute to a reduction in the demand for temporary accommodation in Edinburgh.

Objective 3: All households accessing the Service have had their financial and support needs assessed, with referrals being made to appropriate housing support or advice Providers.

Objective 4: Establish positive relationships with private Landlords, Council services and other partners.

Objective 5: Prevent future homelessness by addressing any immediate Tenancy concerns and assisting households to have saved for their own deposit.

In achieving these objectives, the Service contributes to the City Housing Strategy 2018 and Homelessness Prevention Commissioning Strategy (2011-2016) by assisting people to get and keep a home .
