Countywide Participation Agreement - Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Services
Date of decision: Friday, September 10, 2021
Service area: Strategic Housing Services
What decision was taken?
To formalise the join working agreement between the Gloucestershire Authorities to commission homelessness and rough sleeper services on a countywide basis, where appropriate.
The authorities of Gloucestershire have long worked in partnership to commission and procure services for rough sleepers and households facing homelessness on the basis that join work results in cost savings and better services. This participation agreement formalises that relationship and negates the need for individual agreements per project, which is inefficient and time consuming.
