From homeless to homeowner... tackling the challenges together

8th May 2019

Last month the East of England LGA hosted a housing and homelessness event in partnership with Rentplus. The "Building Solutions; from Homeless to Homeowner" event saw partners from across the East gather to discuss innovative solutions to reduce homelessness and meet local housing needs. 

Delegates attending the summit were invited to identify opportunities for greater collaboration and integration locally, regionally and nationally. 

The key message was that tackling homelessness and a shortage of homes across the East of England requires a range of solutions and integrated strategies. Local authorities need to be able to house homeless people suitably and efficiently.

Through stronger collaboration, the East of England councils have the ability to deliver housing and homeless strategies that meets the needs of the region.  Over the next few months we will be developing a work programme to support councils to address these issues.
