The Cranstoun Housing First service supports entrenched rough sleepers in Birmingham to source, secure, settle into, and sustain their own accommodation.

About Housing First

Cranstoun’s Housing First service works to support people to secure and maintain accommodation. Housing First understands that housing is a basic human right and that secure accommodation is a stable platform to address any other issues effecting a person’s life.

Cranstoun Housing First is delivered in partnership with Birmingham City Council and other Housing First providers.
