Autumn Newsletter 2020

The Passage first opened its doors in October 1980. As we commemorate 40 years of our charitable work, emergency measures that were put in place during the first wave of the Coronavirus pandemic – such as the ban on evictions and the furlough scheme – are ending, with thousands of job losses expected in the coming months and a real concern that this will lead to a rise in the street homeless population. Our services have never been in more demand by people experiencing homelessness or housing crisis, many for the first time. Read our Autumn Newsletter for our latest updates from the past five months during Covid-19.

Modern Slavery Multi-Agency Case Conferences at The Passage, evaluation Report from November 2018 to December 2019

The Passage established a Multi-Agency Case Conference (MACC) approach to safeguarding potential victims of modern slavery, trafficking and exploitation who are homeless, including people with no recourse to public funds. The MACC pilot project started in November 2018 in partnership with Westminster City Council (Adult Safeguarding Team and Housing Team) and the NHS Central London Homeless Teams (Homeless Health Team and Joint Health Team). The project explores help available to people at risk of (re)trafficking and (re)exploitation and tests the efficiency of the MACC approach as well as possible replication in other boroughs. By working in partnership with local authorities to support PVs, we provide immediate homelessness relief and aim to prevent modern slavery in Westminster. The report has been approved by Westminster City Council.
