13/08/2019 - Variation to the Housing Independence Service's Rough Sleeper Service Contract ref: 2362    Recommendations Approved

Last year, the Council was successful in a bid to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s (MHCLG) Rough Sleepers Initiative Grant for funding for 2018/19; £25,000 of this was to increase the commissioned Rough Sleepers Outreach Service to fund additional outreach work in 2018/19.

 

This year, the Council has again been successful in obtaining a Rough Sleepers Initiative Grant from MHCLG.

 

On 12th July 2019, the Director of Housing and Neighbourhoods approved the acceptance of this grant from the MHCLG for 2019/20, including the approval to make a further £25,000 available to the Housing Independence Service to pay to the outreach service provider, Framework Housing Association, to continue to provide an additional, temporary outreach worker.
