Briefing on the role of voluntary and statutory sector agencies in reviewing the circumstances when someone sleeping rough has died. Includes Safeguarding Adults Reviews, the role of the Coroner, and multi-agency reviews.
Taking action when someone dies while street homeless
This guidance covers how services can respond to, and learn from, the death of someone sleeping rough. Whether through a Safeguarding Adults Review or multi-agency process, each death should be fully investigated. Voluntary and statutory servies need to understand the circumstances of a person's death in order to identify missed opportunities for intervention and take action to prevent avoidable deaths in future.
We also recommend reading 'Safeguarding, homelessness and rough sleeping: An analysis of Safeguarding Adults Reviews' from NIHR Policy Research Unit in Health and Social Care Workforce, King's College London - or follow the link below to a blog by Bruno Ornelas from VOICES of Stoke, one of the report's authors.
