Kirklees Council awarded Connect a contract to provide support services for young people who are homeless or inappropriately housed, and the first tenants have now moved into the nine en-suite rooms.

The Swan Lane project is jointly funded by Connect, Kirklees Council and the Homes and Communities Agency.
