Rough sleepers

Cornwall Council is undertaking a review of its current rough sleeping and homelessness prevention services, particularly following the pandemic which has fundamentally changed our operating environment.

Part of the review is to look outside Cornwall and develop an understanding of what other local authorities are doing to deliver excellent services, and is concentrating on four areas of delivery, reflecting and complementing our local and the national strategies.

We would like to learn from good practice and successful interventions from other local authorities, and wonder whether you would be willing to share information and examples for our review? Our questionnaire is extremely broad, so any information you can share would be greatly appreciated.
