Homelessness and Rough Sleeper Strategy 2020-25

rough sleeping

Every five years, Watford Borough Council must produce a strategy outlining how it will deal with homelessness and rough sleeping in the borough. 

We have just published our new draft 2020-25 Homelessness and Rough Sleeper Strategy and we want to know what our residents and partners think about it.

The new strategy, which has been created in conjunction with Watford’s Strategic Homelessness Forum, focuses on preventing homelessness from happening in the first place by tackling the root causes and by improving access to affordable housing. Its other key priority is to respond to rough sleeping and providing a range of services that are tailored to the needs of homeless households and homeless vulnerable adults

Please read the Strategy or if you are limited for time read the Action Plan and then share your views by completing our consultation survey

You can also read our review of the homelessness situation in the borough over the last 5 years from 2013/14 to 2018/19.

“Our mission is for Watford to be a place where no-one needs to sleep rough and there is support available for everyone threatened with or actually homeless”
