Brighton & Hove Rough Sleeping Strategy 2016

The issue of rough sleeping has become more acute recently with a visibly increased presence on the streets. This not only impacts on the individual’s life chances, but also the city’s reputation and costs to public services and business.

The city’s current approach to rough sleeping has been re-assessed to ensure that the city’s commissioners, service providers and those supporting people sleeping rough are working in partnership to a clear strategic plan. This plan will reduce rough sleeping in the city and improve outcomes for people sleeping rough and those at risk of rough sleeping.

This report presents the draft Rough Sleeping Strategy 2016 for approval.

Note: Report and Strategy also going for approval at HNH Committee on 15 June 2016. Additional endorsement to be sought at Health & Wellbeing Board (12/7), Strategic Housing Partnership (12/7) and Brighton & Hove Connected (5/7)
