The Council are required to undertake a homelessness review to understand homelessness in the local area. This is used to inform the homelessness strategy, which is a strategy for: preventing homelessness. ensuring that sufficient accommodation  is available for people who are or may become homeless. providing satisfactory support for people who are or may become homeless, or who need support to prevent them becoming homeless again.  We must undertake this process every 5 years and our current strategy expiring this year.  We have undertaken our detailed review and developed this draft strategy ready for consultation.
