Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy

Closed 25 Nov 2019

Opened 30 Sep 2019

Overview

Under Section 1(1) of the Homelessness Act 2002, every local authority in England has a duty to formulate a strategy for tackling homelessness. In order to appropriately inform this strategy, a comprehensive homelessness review must take place.

Between February 2019 – September 2019 in Brent, we have been carrying out our homelessness review. The review has included, input from staff across the housing needs service, feedback from external partner organisations via our Homelessness Forum and service-user input through a qualitative research project. The review also involved a thorough desktop analysis of the data we hold, alongside published regional and national statistics.

As a result of this review, we are proposing 5 commitments which aim to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping in Brent and we would like your feedback on them.
