Nearly ten years ago, the CLG launched the Rough Sleeping Strategy 'No One Left Out- Communities ending rough sleeping' (opens new window) (superceded by 'Vision to end rough sleeping: no second night out nationwide' (opens new window))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 outlined how people can become homeless for a number of reasons. It identified the groups of people, causes and demographics. Needs of homeless people ranged from low-level support to access housing and prevent long term rough sleeping, to those with complex longer-term support needs. There were 15 action points and the emphasis was on partnership working, including with health, social care, housing and homelessness agencies.
This section includes information on more recent key policy, case studies, examples of relevant practice, resources to support prevention,and examples of working with people who are homeless, 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
