Supporting independence? Evaluation of the teenage parent supported housing pilot - Final report

The Teenage Parent Supported Housing (TPSH) pilot involved seven local authorities providing ‘enhanced support packages’ for teenage parents, with a particular emphasis on those aged 16 and 17 and those not living with parents/carers (including those living in their own homes or supported housing). The pilot projects were operational from early 2009 to March 2011.

The TPSH pilot was one of a suite of nine ‘Child Poverty Pilots’ funded by central government until March 2011. The pilots enabled local authorities and their partners to develop innovative approaches to tackling the causes and consequences of child poverty and improve outcomes for children and families living in poverty.
