LGiU Homelessness Commission 2019, Final Report

The LGiU has today, Thursday 20th June, published its final report of the Local Government Homelessness Commission.

The LGiU Local Government Homelessness Commission was set up to investigate how councils can fulfil their obligation to prevent homelessness. This includes the duties under the HRA, but is actually much wider. This report is the first assessment of the state of homelessness prevention from the perspective of local government, those who are tasked with actually implementing the policy and supporting some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

The Commission was led by local government. Cllr Peter Fleming, leader of Sevenoaks District Council, and Cllr Simon Blackburn, leader of Blackpool Council, both LGiU members, were co-chairs and were joined by a panel of local government experts.
