A Catalyst housing scheme in Hertford that helps vulnerable young adults get back on their feet has been praised by a local MP. 

 Julie Marson, MP for Hertford and Stortford, visited Rose Court to learn more about the scheme, which provides accommodation and specialist support for 16-25-year-olds. The young adults referred to us may be homeless or facing homelessness. 

Rose Court, and our other young person’s service schemes, helps young adults get back on their feet and live independently in their own home, and secure employment, education and training. 

During her visit, Ms Marson met with our colleagues and spoke to some of the residents. 

Ms Marson told us: ‘Rose Court is giving support to some of the most disadvantaged young people in our area and enabling new opportunities for them to reach their true potential. I am really pleased to give the programme my support and am very grateful to the team at Rose Court and the young people themselves for showing me around recently and explaining in detail the services they provide.’ 

Ms Marson’s visited Rose Court as part of the National Housing Federation’s Starts at Home campaign, which aims to champion the value of supported housing services. 

Colet Kiss, Head of Independent Living at Catalyst, said: ‘We’re delighted to have been able to welcome Ms Marson to Rose Court, and grateful for the time she took to get to know our residents, and meet the team.’
