Housing association VIVID and homeless support provider Two Saints have formed a partnership, hoping to bring added assurance to the provision of vital support services and accommodation for the benefit of local people.

The new partnership has been formed to tackle rising homelessness and create better wellbeing outcomes for people across the South of England.

Together, VIVID and Two Saints have said they will share expertise in providing mental health and support services, with Two Saints bidding for new support contracts and VIVID increasing the amount of accommodation available.

Mark Perry, CEO of VIVID, said: “Supported housing has a critical role in meeting the needs of people who are at risk of or are experiencing homelessness.

“We’re delighted to be working together as trusted partners to ensure the stable provision of accommodation and services for those in need.

“We’re here to help deliver the best outcomes for local people, and forming this strong partnership will enable that to happen.”

Steve Benson, CEO of Two Saints, added: “We’re really excited by the opportunity to work in partnership with VIVID.

“Bringing together VIVID’s strength as the largest housing association in Hampshire with Two Saints’ experience of providing support to vulnerable people will benefit local people in the communities we both serve.”
