Read about our work to proactively tackle homelessness using local predictors, developed with household data. With Claire Horton, Newcastle City Council.
Local authorities must meet new prevention duties under the Homelessness Reduction Act. Policy in Practice is helping councils identify the predictors of homelessness in their areas. Using existing data we segment households into those coping, struggling, at risk or in crisis to help prevent future homelessness.
View these slides to see how Policy in Practice’s LIFT dashboard can help you tackle homelessness by:
identifying who may be at risk of homelessness
offering tailored messages to help you engage with those households
tracking what happens to those households over time
We will be joined by Claire Horton, Newcastle City Council, who will share how they are using the dashboard to help meet the new requirements of the Homelessness Reduction Act.
The Homelessness Reduction Act shifts the focus to early intervention, extends the period during which an authority should consider someone as being threatened with homelessness, requires local authorities to develop an action plan for people identified as being at risk of homelessness and places a duty on public services to notify a local authority if they come into contact with someone they think may be homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
