Abstract

Journey to Social Inclusion was a three year pilot that provided intensive support designed to break the cycle of long-term homelessness. This report presents the social and economic outcomes of the J2SI pilot. It covers the three years the trial ran, and the 12 month period following the completion of the trial. The evaluation used a randomised controlled trial to track and compare the outcomes of the J2SI participants (Group J) with those of an equivalent group of long-term homeless people (Group E) who were supported by existing services. After 48 months 67% of the original participants remained involved in the trial. The evidence suggests that J2SI had a positive impact on the lives of most participants, over time and relative to the control group.

Keywords: supportive housing; chronic homelessness, intensive case management; randomised controlled trial
