The City of London Corporation requires a provider to deliver not less than 5 bed spaces to act as initial assessment places within the accommodation pathway.
The City of London supported accommodation pathway consists of low, medium and high-support bed spaces across 5 neighbouring boroughs. In the first instance it is not always apparent what support needs an individual has or if they are eligible for assistance locally, or in the UK. The intended use of the assessment spaces is to better ascertain what support offer is required while the individual is settled in a safe and suitable place.
The assessment spaces are not intended as long-term options and clients should be resettled from them as soon as a credible and deliverable service offer is provided. The designated outreach worker from the City of London outreach team will remain the principle caseworker.
