Head Start Homes exists to increase access to social housing for people in need who are typically homeless, with the added benefit of supporting community housing tenants overcome structural barriers to achieve home ownership.
The Head Start Guarantee is an innovative solution whereby Head Start Homes provides a pathway into home ownership by acting as guarantor for community housing tenants who can afford a home loan but are locked out due to the need for a large deposit and mortgage insurance. Head Start Homes effectively acts as ‘bank of mum and dad’ for those who face structural disadvantage.
This brief focuses on an initiative called PLAY START – a life-literacy gamified program for families and individuals living in community housing that supports their transition to home ownership.
- Research and define the user needs of occupants and their families in relation to the PLAY START concept.
- Design a solution that represents how you see these quest areas coming to life for the target audience. Students may wish to choose one as their main focus area.
