Dorset Homelessness Strategy 2015 to 2019
Annual update 2018 to 2019
Before the creation of the new Dorset Council in April, the Dorset Housing Teams worked on ways to prevent homelessness, which included working with various partners and with many other agencies.
We’re pleased to share the Dorset Homelessness Strategy Annual Update 2018 to 2019, which gives a comprehensive picture of the very successful work done so far. The report includes detailed statistical and performance information relating to homeless prevention and homelessness activity, together with helpful explanations. The implementation of the Homeless Reduction Act (HRA) 2017 significantly changed the way approaches for assistance are managed and focuses on prevention and support. Reporting requirements by the government have altered, meaning there are changes to some of the report content.
We’re continuing to work on preventing homelessness and support those who are vulnerable. The first annual report from Dorset Council will be published next year.
