Rough Sleeping: Homelessness Strategy Consultation

Closed 20 Sep 2020

Opened 10 Aug 2020


We are consulting members of the public on our Rough Sleeping Addendum.  Forming part of our overall Homelessness Prevention Strategy this document specifically sets out the approach and key areas of action being taken in response to rough sleeping over the next three years.

The data collected through the survey is anonymous, so you cannot be identified from what you have said. We plan to publish the findings from the survey at a population rather than an individual level (for example in numbers and graphs using summary results). Any quotes used from answers will remain anonymous.

Further details information and details about this consultation are found in the following three related documents:

  • Rough Sleeping Addendum Consultation Document.
  • Rough Sleeping Addendum 2020 Strategy Document.
  • Rough Sleeping Needs Analysis (January 2020).

Why we are consulting

Over the last three years there have been several significant local and national developments relating to rough sleeping. This consultation will help inform our strategy which we will publish later this year.


What happens next

Your views will help us shape the final version of our strategy by establishing a comprehensive set of priority actions for the next three years in response to rough sleeping in Birmingham.  Alongside this online consultation, council officers will be meeting key community and service stakeholders including people with lived experience of rough sleeping. 

A report detailing the final outcome of this consultation will be availabe in October 2020.
