Homelessness and rough sleeper strategy

Under the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017, local authorities must have a homelessness and rough sleeper strategy based on a review of their area.

A homelessness review considers:

  • How many residents are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless
  • The likely extent of homelessness in the future
  • What is currently being done and by who
  • The resources available to prevent and tackle homelessness.

Havant Borough Council has conducted a review and developed its own homelessness strategy.

The strategy sets out an action plan for achieving homelessness related objectives. HBC aims to deliver its strategy by working with partners and implementing a Homelessness Partnership Forum.
