Homelessness can be caused by a number of different life experiences including personal factors such as poor health and relationship breakdown, as well as local circumstances concerning housing supply and national policy such as welfare reform.
Birmingham City Council and our strategic partners from the Housing Birmingham Partnership and across Health, Housing, Voluntary and Third Sectors would welcome your views about how we can best achieve our vision together as part of the consultation we are currently holding to develop the Homelessness Prevention Strategy.
The consultation is available at https://www.birminghambeheard.org.uk. The consultation documents and questionnaire outline our plans to tackle homelessness in Birmingham and provides you with an opportunity to tell us what you think. There are five key questions that we would like you to respond to but we also welcome any other comments you might wish to make in relation to ending homelessness in the city.
The consultation period runs from Thursday 24 August to Thursday 5 October 2017 so we hope to hear from you within this period.
Please forward this communication to anyone who may be interested in giving us their views.
