Homelessness in Bassetlaw:

The Government introduced new legislation in April 2018 which changed the way Councils have to deal with homeless households.  The Homeless Reduction Act amended existing homelessness law in 5 key ways:

  • Improving the advice and information available about homelessness and the prevention of homelessness
  • Extending the period ‘threatened with homelessness’ from 28 days to 56 days
  • Introducing new duties to prevent and relieve homelessness for all eligible people, regardless of priority need, intentionality and local connection
  • Introducing assessments and personalised housing plans
  • Encouraging public bodies to work together to prevent and relieve homelessness through a duty to refer
