Report of the Deputy Chief Executive (People)

Additional documents:


The Cabinet considered a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (People) on the adoption of the Rough Sleeper Strategy 2019-2024. Appendices to the report provided a copy of the Rough Sleeping Strategy 2019-24; Partners Commitment; Rough Sleeping Action Plan; Consultation Statement and the Equality and Part 1 & 2 of the Consultation Analysis.


The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government required that a Rough Sleeping Strategy, which focussed on the principles: to prevent new people from starting to sleep rough; to intervene rapidly when people start to sleep rough to help them off the street; and to promote a person's recovery once they are off the street to build positive lives and so they do not return to rough-sleeping, was published by December 2019.


Following engagement with key stakeholders, a draft Strategy and Action Plan 2019-2024 was consulted on from 18th September to 30th October 2019. The results of the consultation and key points raised through the process were detailed in the report.


The Strategy was supported by an Action Plan that would remain a live document and be monitored and delivered by the City Council and its relevant partners.


RESOLVED that the Cabinet, having considered the consultation responses received to the draft Strategy and the summary report provided at Appendix C to the report, recommends that the City Council adopts the new Rough Sleeping Strategy 2019-2024, attached as Appendix A to the report, and the supporting Action Plan, attached as Appendix B to the report, with immediate effect.
