In November 2008 the CLG launched the Rough Sleeping Strategy 'No One Left Out- Communities ending rough sleeping' (opens new window) (superceded by 'Vision to end rough sleeping: no second night out nationwide' (opens new window))
This outlines how people can become homeless for a number of reasons. It identifies the groups of people, causes and demographics. Needs of homeless people range from low-level support to access housing and prevent long term rough sleeping, to those with complex longer-term support needs. There are 15 action points and the emphasis is on partnership working, including with health, social care, housing and homelessness agencies.
This section includes information on the key policy, No One Left Out (opens new window), case studies, examples of practice, resources to support prevention,and examples of working with people, addressing their wider needs and links to other sites.
The information is split into the following :
- Policy - "No One Left Out : Communities ending rough sleeping"
Including sub-sub-topics :
- Mental Health and Homelessness
- Older Homeless people
