Homelessness Reduction Act - One Year On inquiry


The Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee will hold an evidence session on the implementation of the Homelessness Reduction Act, when they take evidence from Heather Wheeler MP, Minister for Housing and Homelessness, homelessness charities and local government.

The Homelessness Reduction Act was introduced to the House of Commons by HCLG Committee member, Bob Blackman MP. It became law in 2017 and was implemented by the Government and local authorities in 2018.

The session will investigate what impact the Act has had in the time it has been in operation. It will examine how local authorities have adapted the services they provide and the additional costs this has placed on them. It will look at how outcomes have changed for people at risk of becoming homeless or who are in need of accommodation. The Committee will also consider whether reforms could be made to improve the legislation, both from the perspective of local authorities and their service users.
