Pathfinder – Homelessness Support

Pathfinder, Greater Manchester, Better Outcomes Partnerships

Pathfinder is a 3-year homelessness prevention programme for young people across Greater Manchester, commissioned by GMCA.

The programme has been designed for young people who are at risk of homelessness, including those who have experienced relationship breakdowns, financial instability, or lacking the skills needed to live independently, the programme can help. Through coaching, it enables these young people to overcome any challenges that are impacting their accommodation. The priority is to work with 18-25-year-olds, but the programme is able to support people from 16 – 35 on a case-by-case basis.

What can young people expect from the project?

  • Sustained accommodation either through stabilising existing accommodation or facilitating access to new long-term accommodation.
  • A personalised plan, led by the young person, that reflects their strengths, aspirations, and circumstances.
  • Opportunities to engage in activities that they find interesting or helpful in their life to support their values. This can include a broad array of learning, working, or volunteering activities.
  • A focus on wellbeing, supporting improvement of their mental health and physical health.
  • Coaching style of delivery to empower young people to realise and achieve their goals and aspirations for the future, and to create long-term, sustainable changes to their housing.
