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