About the strategy

The City of London Corporation has launched a public consultation on its new Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2023-27.

We want to hear your views to make sure we deliver the best strategy for those who are homeless or rough sleeping and at risk of being homeless.

Our vision is that when homelessness occurs – or is threatened – the strength of our response ensures it is brief, it does not re-occur, it’s impact on the individual and our communities is minimised, and it is prevented where we can act to do so.

The Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy 2023-27 sets out what we aim to do to ensure those at risk of or experiencing homelessness or rough sleeping in the square mile are supported by our services and delivery partners in a swift, effective, compassionate, fair and respectful way.

After the consultation we will use the feedback to produce a final strategy document, and then create a detailed action plan that will sit alongside the final strategy. That will outline the steps and actions that we will take to enable us to achieve the vision, outcomes and objectives of the strategy, alongside our work with partners to support those at risk of or experiencing homelessness and rough sleeping in the City of London.

What is Homelessness and Rough Sleeping?

Homelessness occurs when someone is at risk of losing the place that they live in and having no home to live in.

Rough Sleeping is the most visible and dangerous form of homelessness, where someone is sleeping out on the streets.

Support can range from:

  • Advice and information on housing
  • Mediation with Landlords
  • Support for those fleeing domestic abuse
  • Legal Advice
  • Sourcing temporary, emergency or social housing
  • Supporting former members of the armed forces
  • Support with benefits and housing support

Please have a look at the proposed strategy in the PDF below and respond to our survey.
