Abstract

The core element of the evaluation is the longitudinal tracking of a cohort of 135 lone adults who are currently homeless, at risk of homelessness or who have a history of homelessness who engage with one of six Skylight services run by the homelessness charity Skylight. Using a mix of arts-based activities, basic skills education, accredited vocational learning, social enterprise, support with job searching and individual support delivered using a personalisation influenced approach, Skylights are designed to promote social and economic integration for homeless people. The evaluation is tracking the progress of this group of homeless people making use of Skylight services in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London, Merseyside, Newcastle and London over the course of 2013-2015. This interim report details the results from the first year of the evaluation.
