Advice for homeless people April 2013

SLDC has recently adopted a policy on discharging the homelessness duty into the private rented sector. The homeless duty normally arises when a household has a child and/or pregnant woman or has a member of the household who is classed as vulnerable (for example by way of age, mental health or disability). The policy will help homeless households to be rehoused more quickly out of temporary accommodation into more settled accommodation.
