Positive Support Pathway (PSP)

The Positive Support Pathway (PSP) is a flexible housing support model for young people aged 16-25. Its aim is to provide effective support to homeless young people and those at risk of becoming homeless in Darlington. The pathway provides access to end-to-end housing-related support including the following options:

  • Supported accommodation
  • Floating support
  • Dispersed accommodation
  • Mediation services
  • Prevention work and awareness-raising
  • A dedicated crash pad for short-term stays
  • Designated Looked After Children (LAC) units in the foyer (3)
  • A range of activities, advice and guidance at the Hub – to more young people towards independent living.

The aim of the pathway is to support young people aged 16 and 25 to develop the skills needed to maintain a tenancy in the community and to live independently.

This service is funded by Darlington Borough Council.

To be considered for this service please contact Darlington Housing Options team on 01325 405 333 who will complete a Gateway assessment.

Tees Valley YMCA will then contact the young person and arrange a housing interview to discuss their current situation.
