A project that In Control helped initiate has won the
prestigious Andy Ludlow Homelessness Award.
The City of London project was run with Broadway and it
demonstrated a new way of working to get the most entrenched rough
sleepers off the streets by providing personalised budgets and
intensive support to each individual.
All those involved in the project had been sleeping rough for
between four and 45 years and had been very reluctant to take up
offers of hostel places or detox programmes. Staff worked with each
person to develop a personalised budget and an action plan to help
them move away from sleeping rough at their own pace.
As winners of the award they will receive £25,00 prize
The Andy Ludlow Homelessness Awards are the country's leading
homelessness awards. The awards recgonise and highlight innovative
practice in the homelessness sector in London.
