Monitoring

The homelessness strategy for Shropshire will establish the action plan for addressing the needs of the homeless and those at risk of homelessness

Housing authorities are required to conduct a homelessness review and develop a strategy based on the results of that review.

Due to increased workloads and demands on the service, in response to Covid 19, resources were directed to frontline support.  MHCLG agreed to extend the deadline to prioritise frontline work.  Whilst the aim was to be ready for consultation by June 21 but continued pressures have resulted in the timeline being extended to later in the year. 

To address this position the Housing Options Team will be working with the Homes and Communities Team who have allocated additional resource to support delivery of the strategy in readiness for consultation by Q3.
