Consultation Open for Folkestone and Hythe District Council Homelessness Prevention Strategy 2020-2025

Folkestone and Hythe District Council are looking for your views on their draft Homelessness Prevention Strategy for the next five years from 2020 to 2025.  The Homelessness Act 2002 requires every local authority to review and renew their Homelessness Strategy every five years.  They also realise the necessity to review the districts needs and refresh our strategic objectives around homelessness.

Their previous strategy was a joint East Kent Homelessness Prevention Strategy, adopted by Folkestone & Hythe, Canterbury, Dover & Thanet Council’s and agreed in 2014.  Over the last few years there has been significant legislative change and welfare reform.  Each Council is now focusing on their areas particular issues, identifying a need to now have their own Homelessness Prevention Strategies.

For further information, a copy of the draft strategy, and for access to the feedback survey please visit the webpage on the Council’s website Draft Homelessness Prevention Strategy Consultation 2020-2025 – Folkestone & Hythe District Council

The consultation is open until 5pm on Friday 2 October 2020.
