This guidance focuses on the strategic and over-arching aspects of setting up a service in response to homelessness. Practical advice is included but it should be noted that there are a number of variables such as type of service, group of people, and local area context which prevent offering a comprehensive step-by-step guide or 'one size fits all' model.
Who is this guidance for?
This guidance is aimed at people or small organisations who are considering setting up a service in response to homelessness in their area. It can also be used by local authorities working with community services as a good practice resource.
