Homelessness Prevention Strategy

The 2014 -2017 Homelessness Prevention Strategy for Southend-on-Sea reviews homelessness within the Borough and sets out our plans for working in collaboration with partners to tackle it. 
The Strategy focuses on the following 5 key areas:
  • Preventing and avoiding homelessness
  • Minimising Rough sleeping
  • Improving the health and well being of homeless people in the borough
  • Encouraging the suitable provision of accommodation for those who are, or may become homeless
  • Minimising youth and young person’s homelessness.
The Strategy and our plan for achieving its aims can be found in our Homelessness downloads section
