Greater Manchester Homelessness Prevention Strategy consultation

Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) is consulting on a new Greater Manchester Homelessness Prevention Strategy.

To prevent homelessness and rough sleeping the Homelessness Prevention Strategy sets out that:

  • Everyone is able to sustain a home that is safe, decent and affordable

  • Everyone leaves our places of care (care, health facility, prison, asylum) with a safe place to go

  • Where people are at imminent risk of homelessness they are able to access quality advice, advocacy and support

  • No one is forced to sleep rough and temporary accommodation supports respite, recovery and re-connection

  • Homelessness is not an entrenched or repeat experience

This will be achieved with three shared commitments that guide the way all necessary sectors and stakeholders will act: 

  • To work with People; being truly person-centred, building wellbeing and addressing inequality

  • To build Participation; where people participate in decisions that affect their lives and lived experience is highly valued

  • To embed Prevention; ensuring public services create the conditions for success

The Homelessness Prevention Strategy sets out the steps Greater Manchester needs to take over the next five years to help tackle homelessness and rough sleeping in Greater Manchester.

GMCA are keen to get input from Greater Manchester residents and stakeholders on the strategy so that your views influence the plans and inform decision making.
