Homelessness Policy - Scope of Policy

The scope of this policy is to provide clear and transparent detail regarding the activities and responsibilities of the Council to people who are homeless or threatened with homelessness. 

Homelessness is not a lifestyle choice that people make; it can happen to anyone, and is the most extreme form of housing need.  It is rarely just a ‘bricks and mortar’ problem - it is a complex issue.

The Council aims to provide realistic solutions to address housing need in order to maximise housing options and alleviate homelessness through its commitment to improve on prevention measures.
