Homelessness

The Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 places a new legal duty on English councils so that everyone who is homeless or at risk of homelessness will have access to meaningful help including an assessment of their needs and circumstances, the development of a personalised housing plan, and work to help them retain their accommodation or find a new place to live.

The Homelessness Reduction Act factsheets summarise the new duties which shift the focus to early intervention and encourages those at risk to seek support as soon as possible, before they are facing a homelessness crisis. You can read them here.
