In September 2022, the Government published their long-awaited rough sleeping strategy: “Ending rough sleeping for good”. It set out a clear and defined vision for ending rough sleeping: that it is prevented wherever possible, and where it does occur, it is rare, brief, and non-recurrent. But, how is success charted and progress measured against such a vision?
Over the past year, Centre for Homelessness Impact (CHI) has worked collaboratively with local and national government to develop a new ‘Ending Rough Sleeping Framework’. The framework is a national data collection model, being rolled out England-wide in May 2023, that will use data gathered by local authorities on a monthly basis to measure progress towards the vision of ending rough sleeping for good, using five key indicators.
This webinar explains the new framework and provides concrete examples of how it is already working well for the local authorities that have piloted the framework since last autumn.
