Homelessness Strategy Consultation

Consultation is now closed.

At least every five years all local authorities have a duty to review homelessness in their area and publish a strategy that outlines how it intends to tackle and prevent homelessness.

We have drafted our Homelessness Strategy to set out the priorities and plans for the next five years and we would like your views.

We have set the following priorities:

  • Priority One - Increase the use and accessibility of the private rented sector
  • Priority Two - Prevent homelessness by supporting people to access housing and to sustain their accommodation
  • Priority Three - Increase the information and advice available to enable people to make informed decisions about their housing situation

These priorities can be found in detail in the pdf icon Executive Summary [83kb] and pdf icon Draft Homelessness Strategy [325kb].
