​Homelessness Prevention and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2020 - 2025​

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


To assist in the development of our new strategy, a homelessness review was undertaken in 2019 to look at patterns in homeless since 2014, the causes of homelessness, the interventions which have been employed to prevent homelessness and how we have responded to the needs of those who are already homeless.


The independent review found that significant progress had been made against all four key objectives in our previous Homelessness Strategy (2014-19).
Homelessness Review 2​019


Our new Homelessness Prevention and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2020 - 2025 sets out what we need to do in order to develop and continue to improve over the next five years.

Homelessness Prevention and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2020 - 2025


Our vision is that:

Everyone has a secure and affordable place to live; advice and support is available for those threatened with homelessness; effective early intervention means that no-one becomes homeless or has to sleep rough.


Our five priorities are:

  • Priority one: Continue to work to prevent homelessness wherever possible, and to respond effectively to homeless households;
  • Priority two: Work with partners to tackle underlying causes of homelessness, including sustainment of tenancies across private and social sectors;
  • Priority three: Increase housing options for under 35s, including young people leaving care;
  • Priority four: End rough sleeping; and,
  • Priority five: Make best use of resources.
