Rough sleeper reduction strategy consultation

We are currently consulting on the draft Rough Sleepers Reduction Strategy. This strategy sets out our vision and plans for reducing Rough Sleeping over the next three years. The strategy covers a range of themes which provide a framework to address Rough Sleeping in Swindon. The consultation will run from Thursday, 13 December 2018 to Thursday, 31 January 2018 and the results and comments will be collated.

The main themes of the draft Rough Sleepers Reduction Strategy are:

  • Work in partnership to prevent people sleeping rough in the first place – no-one arrives on the street
  • Rapid joined up response when people do end up on the streets
  • Provide an outreach service for those with complex or multiple needs
  • No-one should return to the streets
  • Develop a range of accommodation and support solutions tailored to individual needs
