Preventing Homelessness Strategy 2014-2019

The Council is required under the terms of the Homelessness Act 2002 to produce a Homelessness Strategy. A new 5 year Preventing Homelessness Strategy has been adopted which reflects current priorities and best practice trends in Housing Options services.

The consultation on this strategy commenced with a multi-agency workshop event in June 2013 which examined the effectiveness of existing approaches to homelessness and highlighted gaps in provision and emerging priorities. The detail of this consultation event, workshop outcomes, resulting questionnaire, peer review continuous improvement plan and statistical evidence can be found in the Consultation and Review of Homelessness Report with the overarching themes and needs coming from the report being developed into a ‘top ten’ priorities for consideration across this strategy.
