    A local authority’s homelessness commission has planned a strategy which  aims to eradicate homelessness in the area by 2018.

    Warrington Homelessness Commission has provided ten recommendations to remove homelessness in its report ‘Leading a public debate focused on homelessness in Warrington’. Annual Report 2

    The recommendations include a single gateway approach, with all agencies involved working together closely, a strategic review in the way homelessness services are commissioned, managed and delivered and identifying more effective methods of future commissioning and delivery of services, reports Inside Housing.

    They also recommend a multi-agency group who will be developed to lead all homelessness work in the area and within three to five year, a borough wide strategy delivery plan is created.

    Nick Atkin, the independent chair of the Warrington Homelessness Commission, said: “Warrington has an increasing number of people accessing homelessness services who have complex needs. The magnitude and complexity of the issues that face Warrington should not be underestimated. It is critical to the success of this commission’s recommendations that there is a joint approach by all those who work in varying roles across the town to work in partnership.”

    Responding to the DWP Consultation:  Housing Benefit Reform - Supported Housing

    "It was well-run, in a good location, and very useful.  I've only one suggestion; as the session went on it would perhaps have been useful for bullet points of general agreement about what should be in the sector response to be displayed and added to as the session went on, maybe on a flip chart. Regarding your response paper, I particularly like the answer you give to question 9.  In fact the general: "if it ain't broke don't fix it" response could be pushed harder."
