Does anyone have and recent examples of where having a Youth Worker and or community worker living in the community has had a positive impact on the estates?
we are ideally looking for examples of where Housing Associations made properties available for workers who wouldn’t be eligible for their help under normal circumstances, in areas of high social need.
One of our potential projects has access to a house that their housing association is thinking about making available. It would be great if you had any clear evidence base eg reduced crime rates, quotes from councillors, recommendations from associations. We hope to compile a bit of an evidence base and produce a short report that we will make available to others seeking to move into the neighborhood.
