Council launches consultation in bid to prevent residents from sleeping rough


share close

Warwick District Council has today (5th February) launched a consultation on its draft Homelessness Strategy for 2021-2026.

The new strategy outlines the provision and preventative measures the Council plans to implement to ensure that this good work continues and is extended to reducing all forms of homelessness.

Since adopting the previous strategy in 2017, the Council has made significant progress in enhancing and delivering services for people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Housing Services, Councillor Jan Matecki commented:

“I’m extremely proud of the work we have done since 2018, in particular, during the pandemic, when alongside voluntary agencies we provided secure accommodation for more than 80 individuals who were sleeping rough or at risk of homelessness. Our aim through this strategy is to make a temporary fix into a permanent solution, for the most vulnerable in our community.”

The consultation closes on 7 March 2021.
