The Evaluation of a Housing Brokerage Scheme for Younger Adults with Visual Impairment report presents the evaluation of an innovative pilot housing brokerage service that was run by Housing Options Scotland (HOS). HOS provided a person-centred brokerage service to 22 clients with a diverse range of circumstances and housing requirements. The evaluation found that housing brokerage is an effective method for assisting younger adults with visual impairment to find a new home, with the majority of the 22 younger adults who used the pilot service having had a positive outcome.
