Our homelessness strategy

Leicester’s homelessness strategy will continue to focus on preventing homelessness and breaking the cycle of homelessness, to prevent people from becoming homeless - thanks to support provided by the council and voluntary sector services.

Please note: we now have an updated homelessness strategy for 2023 - 2028

The 2018 - 2023 homelessness strategy can be downloaded in full at the bottom of the page.

Our strategic aims are:

  • Anyone at risk of homelessness is aware of and has access to the services they may need to prevent it.
  • Provide suitable accommodation and support options for people who are, or who may become homeless.
  • Reduce rates of repeat homelessness amongst single people.
  • Provide the right support and services so that no person needs to sleep rough in Leicester.
