H4 Hospital has with six overarching project aims which ensure that homeless people:
Have a suitable place to stay which is ready for them when they are discharged from Hospital;
Are supported to access long term settled accommodation after dealing with their immediate homelessness issue;
Have access to a named GP and other health professionals (e.g. Health Advocate) in the community as needed;
Report a reduced use of crisis services in the future, e.g. inappropriate A&E visits;
Are enabled to volunteer within the H3 charity and give something back as well as developing new skills and gaining the opportunity to socialise;
Report that they feel improved wellbeing and confidence to manage their health and housing independently.
Wider systems change
In addition to the above we aim to create wider impact to the kind of provision that our clients are able to access. We aim to:
Understand clients' relationship with health and wellbeing services, when entwined with homelessness issues.
To create system's change within local services to improve access, engagement and outcomes for vulnerable clients.
To be valued as an active partner in creating health and wellbeing by peer organisations working across health and housing.
