Additional documents:


The Cabinet considered the report of the Strategic Director of Regeneration and Environment which sought approval and endorsement of Wirral’s Homelessness Strategy 2013-18, following public consultation with stakeholders and service users.  The Homelessness Strategy was a statutory requirement of the Homelessness Act 2002 which placed a duty on local authorities to adopt a strategic approach to homeless issues by completing a comprehensive review of all forms of homelessness in their area and publishing a Homelessness Strategy at least every five years, ensuring this was taken into account when discharging its homeless function.


The new Homelessness Strategy would support one of the Council’s Corporate Plan 2013-2016 focuses, which was to “Protect the vulnerable people in our borough”.




That the Homelessness Strategy 2013 – 18 as detailed in Appendix Two of the report be approved.
