Details of consultation
Wokingham Borough Council is committed to supporting those at risk of homelessness and people who sleep rough. The council has a new draft strategy to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping in the borough and wants to know what you think.
The strategy has four key priorities: early intervention and prevention; working towards ending rough sleeping and tackling hidden homelessness (people who become homeless but are staying with friends or family); building more affordable homes; and supporting our vulnerable residents.
To address these priorities, the council is proposing to work with long-term rough sleepers, look closely at the hidden homeless in the borough and reduce its use of emergency and temporary accommodation for the homeless.
