This report looks at how public bodies can help to end people sleeping rough in Wales.
This is the phase two work of our review of partnership working and follows on from our report looking at Public Service Boards published in October 2019.
In the first three months of the pandemic the Welsh Government supported councils to rehouse over 800 people sleeping rough or at risk of homelessness.
One of the unexpected outcomes of the lockdown is that rough sleeping has been significantly reduced.
What we did
We found that in recent years whilst many public bodies work with people sleeping rough, services were not always joined up and helping people when they needed it.
Responding to COVID-19 is an opportunity for public bodies to start addressing long standing weaknesses in partnership working which has stopped them from tackling rough sleeping in the past.
We have made two recommendations for public bodies in the report:
- Ensure intelligent use of data.
- To use our complex needs self-reflection tool to improve how they can jointly address complex needs in the future.
