Homelessness services review 2017

Closed 13 Mar 2017

Opened 30 Jan 2017

Overview

Homelessness services in Leicester provide a range of housing, advice and support services for people affected by homelessness, and are delivered by a range of groups and organisations that include Leicester City Council and various voluntary, faith and community organisations.

Every five years the council has to undertake a review of homelessness services and produce a homelessness strategy.

This review is happening at a time when continued reductions in government funding mean that Leicester City Council needs to make additional budget savings of £55 million by April 2019. This is on top of the £100 million of savings already made.

All council departments will be affected by financial cuts, including Housing, which delivers homelessness services on behalf of the council.

Why We Are Consulting

It is important that we have an effective strategy to tackle homelessness that will enable support to be provided to those most in need and to prevent homelessness wherever possible.

We want to hear you views on these services: how they are being delivered now and how you think they might be delivered in the future.
