Overview

Have your Say on Local Homelessness Services

We are consulting to help us to develop a new Homelessness Strategy.

It will help to decide how we deliver homelessness services in Melton over the next 5 years

We would like your views on how we can help to reduce homelessness in Melton, how our current service works and how we can improve

We would particularly like to hear from anyone who has experienced homelessness or had a housing crisis that could have ended in homelessness. We want to know about your experiences and what you think can be done to prevent it from happening in the future

We also want to hear from you if you work or support with people who are at risk of homelessness.

Why We Are Consulting

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

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

We have carried out a Homelessness Review to help us to understand the causes of homelessness in Melton and what the priorities of our new strategy might be. You can view this by following the link at the end of this page. 

A discussion paper which sets out what we think the priorities of the new Homelessness Strategy might be is also available to view at the end of the page
