Salford homelessness strategy

Person sat on floor with knees up and arms resting on them

Salford City Council is currently developing a new homelessness strategy for the next five years as we continue our efforts to reduce homelessness and rough sleeping across the city. To ensure we get it right, we want the views of as many people as possible.

The new strategy will summarise the priorities that the council and its partners intend to undertake to address the homelessness issues in Salford. The draft key themes and priorities identified for the new homelessness strategy are:

Priority A: Homelessness is prevented, whenever possible

  • Objective 1 – Early housing/homelessness intervention is seen as ‘everyone’s business’, facilitated through a partnership approach developed with wider universal services.
  • Objective 2 – A prevention-focused approach is better enabled through homelessness service development.

Priority B: Quality support is available to homeless people and those at risk of homelessness

  • Objective 3 – Suitable, good quality and value-for-money temporary accommodation and support (allocated under Part VII, Housing Act) is available to meet the needs of homeless applicants and their families.
  • Objective 4 – Partnership arrangements with wider universal services enables timely assessment of and engagement with vulnerable homeless people to address their wider needs.
  • Objective 5 – Good quality advice and information on homelessness services is made available and is easily accessible to all.
  • Objective 6 – The need for rough sleeping is eradicated.

To help ensure we get this right, we’ve created a survey to capture your feedback. Tell us your views on how we can combat homelessness in Salford and have your say on the new homelessness strategy draft priorities and objectives.

We want to hear from all stakeholders, partners, residents, property owners or tenants in either council or private housing, for their views. These views could be based on past or current experiences or from anyone you know.
