Background Information: The Homelessness Reduction Act was introduced on 3 April 2018. As the Council responded to the legislation, we undertook to review the impact after 12 months. Hence, this review considers the impact of the legislation and our response on customers (in terms of our ability to prevent and relieve homelessness; what outcomes we achieve, and how often / for how long we have to use temporary accommodation) and on our services.
