Settle works to prevent youth homelessness by equipping at-risk young people with the skills needed to manage their money, home and health as they move into their first home. Through its core service, the Settle Tenancy Mentoring Programme (STMP), Settle works closely with social landlords to help young people, many of whom are care-leavers, sustain their tenancy and avoid eviction by increasing income and reducing costs, improving life skills and accessing specialist support. Settle has now delivered 1:1 support to over 100 young adults across 12 London boroughs in partnership with 4 housing associations. Of the 47 young people on its STMP, 100% have sustained their tenancies, while 90% self-reported improved confidence in life skills. The Fore will provide funding to free up the CEO so that he can focus on scaling existing programmes, refining Settle’s overall strategy and developing new services.
