Budget reductions to Housing Related Support Budget 2019

This report sets out proposals for reducing funding to four services currently commissioned by the People Portfolio, to assist the Council to meet its budget within available resources.


The report also proposes to extend the Homeless Prevention and Resettlement Contract provided by Shelter for two years which is permitted within the current contract.


It also proposes to vary the contract to merge a small service funded by Children’s Commissioning to the Homeless Resettlement and Prevention contract to streamline Council contracts and enable a short term continuation of this service to enable the Council to undertake a review of its early intervention and prevention work.
