Homelessness Prevention Strategy

Closes 26 Jun 2021

Consultation contents

This strategy considers how we truly prevent homelessness, as well as mitigating the risks of homelessness when they occur. It is about re-framing homelessness prevention to be as much as about proactively building wellbeing and participation, as it is about taking steps to respond effectively when people need help.

In order to prevent homelessness, we must centre on the experiences of people who face inequalities and discrimination that put them at higher risk of homelessness.

Helping people to get what matters most to them, being person-centred, is a significant challenge within the current structure of public services, often designed to look at the single issues (health, safeguarding, housing, work).

Homelessness is stark evidence of the level and breadth of inequality in society. Inclusive participation ensures that people who face inequalities have a greater say in how society, their community, and their local services need to work better.

Ensuring that the interests of people who face the risk of homelessness are effectively heard in our democratic structures is critical.

There is a solid joint ambition to build on with government: with shared commitments to end rough sleeping and tackle the root causes of homelessness.
