AnnotationThe operation of local authorities' services for homeless people and the impact of government policies on that provision are examined. The duties under which local authorities operate these services are set down by statute: they are required to secure accommodation for certain limited groups of homeless people. This report identifies action needed by local authorities and central government in four areas: setting local policy guidelines; handling applications; use of temporary accommodation; and provision of permanent housing.
