— The Outcome Performance and PbR Framework to be designed by the potential provider.

— Support navigators that are flexible, passionate, highly experienced and qualified to offer consistent and effective information and advice across housing, welfare rights etc.
— Support navigators that are able to offer effective mentoring; who facilitate peer support but who also enable independence
— Small scale and safe accommodation based services with consistent on-site support that are homely but which enable young people to have their own space
— Support navigators demonstrating delivery against personal outcomes, improving well being
— Support pathways that support young people into their own homes and which are clear to young people
— Multi-disciplinary responses and skills aimed at people with more complex needs
— The Outcome Performance and PbR Framework to be designed by the potential provider.
