North Northamptonshire Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy consultation

Closed 31 Mar 2024

Opened 19 Feb 2024


The draft Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2024-2029 sets out how, over the next five years, North Northamptonshire Council will work collaboratively with our partners to build on our existing approach and respond to challenges to tackle and help prevent homelessness and support those who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness.

With the input of local partners through a homelessness conference, we have developed a vision which sums up our over-arching goals for the strategy which is set out in five key priorities:

"Working effectively with our partners to ensure homelessness is prevented and when it does occur, we intervene and relieve homelessness efficiently by providing suitable advice, guidance, support and accommodation, and reduce the need to sleep rough in North Northamptonshire."

We are keen to give everyone in North Northamptonshire the chance to share their views and contribute to the development of this strategy, therefore we are seeking your feedback on the following five priorities:

  1. Increase availability of and access to suitable accommodation to meet local need.
  2. Embed early and effective upstream prevention, reaching people earlier to reduce homelessness.
  3. Support people to sustain or find suitable accommodation.
  1. Make rough sleeping rare, brief, and non-recurring through a comprehensive multi-agency rough sleeping service.
  1. Maximise opportunities for funding and collaboration to develop effective pathways and make the best use of resources.
