Homelessness prevention and rough sleeping strategy

Find our strategy for tackling homelessness and rough sleeping here.

It is a statutory requirement that every local authority has a strategy for preventing homelessness and rough sleeping.

Our Homelessness Prevention and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2020 - 2025, has been drawn up from a robust evidence base which looks at patterns and trends in homeless, the personal and structural factors that lead to people becoming homeless, and the effectiveness of different interventions in preventing homelessness.

The evidence base (Homelessness Review 2019) is published alongside the strategy.  The strategy has been developed to reflect and conforms to statutory requirements, including the updated Code of Guidance 2018.
