Following the inspection and various other external and internal evaluations of our service, the decision was made to undertaken a comprehensive review of the Homelessness Strategy, to ensure it was an up to date working document, reflecting the Council’s ambition to provide excellent housing services.
The Strategy was reviewed in partnership with the Breckland Homelessness Forum, a multi-agency group of key providers of housing, support and specialist advice in Breckland. This Homelessness Strategy sets out the need for homelessness and housing advice services in the Breckland district, and how the Council will go about meeting this need in partnership with our stakeholders. The Strategy was adopted by Full Council in August 2006 and is available to view and download by clicking the below link.
In 2008, an Annual Review of the Strategy was undertaken to ensure the information we are using to drive the development of our Housing Advice and Homelessness service is up-to-date, and to keep our Action Plan current and relevant. This document is a companion document to the main strategy, and sets out the areas in which our service was planned to develop over 2008-9.

A further review and update of the strategy is being undertaken, and will be published on this page when completed.
