Adur & Worthing Homelessness Strategy
At a meeting of the Joint Strategic Sub-Committee in March 2023 it was decided that the Community Homelessness Prevention Strategy 2017 to 2022 be extended until the end of March 2024. For details see: Housing Strategy Roadmap Decision
The Adur & Worthing Community Homelessness Strategy has been developed collaboratively by partners and stakeholders within Adur and Worthing community through the Homelessness Forum. The strategy reflects the common goal to identify as early as possible, individuals and families at risk of homelessness and put in place appropriate intervention to help them sustain or secure suitable accommodation.
This strategy aims to build on the multi-agency and partnership work already in place and also where possible, to mitigate the effects of welfare reform and its impact on homeless households.
This strategy contributes to the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy to develop a more systematic approach so that services can integrate more easily, and to reduce gaps and duplication. This strategy will be overseen by the Adur and Worthing Homelessness Forum which is a partnership of both statutory and voluntary organisations in Adur District and Worthing Borough.
At a meeting of the Joint Strategic Sub-Committee in March 2023 it was decided that the Temporary Accommodation Placement and Procurement Policy be extended until the end of March 2024. For details see: Housing Strategy Roadmap Decision
