Homelessness Focus Report

Problems with the way councils are meeting new housing duties are making some homeless people’s situation worse, we have found.

In our new report, we examine the lessons that councils can learn from the first 50 cases we have investigated under the Homelessness Reduction Act, introduced in 2018.

While the cases are from before the Covid-19 pandemic, the guidance is all the more pertinent as temporary, emergency measures introduced to reduce homelessness during the peak come to an end.
