The right deal for homeless people

Most individuals who are homeless want to work but have multiple barriers to tackle before being able to gain, or sustain, employment. This is even more the case in the competitive, fast-moving, short-term, low-waged labour market that many with low skills or no recent work experience are likely to find themselves in. The Right Deal For Homeless People is a model of holistic, co-ordinated employment support for the most disadvantaged that, if funded and delivered in the right way, will enable more homeless individuals to achieve sustainable, progressive work.
