Ending homelessness, rebuilding lives

Hospital Discharge Network – Recovery Results briefing

The HDN was launched in June 2014 and has supported 63 clients to date.

This briefing presents evidence and lessons from our Hospital Discharge Network, which offers safe temporary accommodation and clinical support for people who are homeless and leaving hospital. St Mungo’s Hospital Discharge Network was established in June 2014 as part of the £10m Department of Health Homeless Hospital Discharge Fund.

Our Hospital Discharge Network (HDN) offers safe temporary accommodation for people who are homeless with support to recover from their stay in hospital, engage with health and social care services and find a suitable place to live. Too many people are still being discharged from hospital to the streets or into unsafe accommodation.
