Centre for Homelessness Impact

Supporting people at risk of homelessness in Kirklees to live independent and fulfilling lives, in their own homes

Kirklees Better Outcomes Partnership (KBOP) is an alliance of three specialist organisations, collaborating to empower and enable individuals at risk of homelessness to achieve their potential and live independent and fulfilling lives.

Across the beautiful rural and urban locations of Kirklees, we focus on supporting and stabilising our participants’ accommodation, so they can live in a safe and settled home. At the same time, we work with participants to understand their goals and ambitions, doing whatever we can to empower them to achieve these.

How do we work?

Operating as a “Floating Support” service, we return power back to an individual – so they can determine their own priorities and lead us in our support efforts.

 

We use an asset-based model to build on strengths, motivations, and personal ambitions, improving lives across a range of areas including:

Accommodation

Accessing and sustaining suitable accommodation

safety

Improving personal safety in relation to domestic violence

guidance

Reducing the risk of reoffending

health & well-being

Engaging with health and substance misuse services

education

Completing educational and training qualifications

employment

Entering and sustaining employment opportunities

Our key question:
What do you want to do
and 
how can we get you there?

Our Partners

Our unique strength is our shared expertise and partnership.
