LOCAL AUTHORITY BRIEFING: Housing people who were rough sleeping and those at risk who have been accommodated due to COVID-19

WRITTEN BY Local Partnerships
POSTED ON 3rd June 2020

Working with the LGA, we have produced this briefing to help councils tackle the next stage of supporting people who were rough sleeping, or at risk of it, in the COVID-19 pandemic. There is strong, all-round commitment not to return people to the streets and our briefing contains detailed information to help councils respond to the Minister for Rough Sleeping and Housingโ€™s request for an initial move-on plan for each individual by 11 June. It gives practical advice on sourcing and funding accommodation and support for this vulnerable group. It covers:

  • needs’ assessment and planning, taking a health-led approach
  • sourcing accommodation and support
  • funding and procurement

Throughout the briefing there are signposts to further help from relevant organisations, including the LGAโ€™s principal advisors for each region. Please find the briefing here.
