Repositioning of Peasholme Centre

Meeting: 16/11/2015 - Decision Session - Executive Member for Finance and Performance (Item 20)

20 Repositioning of Service Provision Peasholme Centre pdf icon PDF 203 KB

This report proposes a subtle repositioning of the accommodation services offered at Peasholme Centre as an entry point service which will align it with other CYC hostel provision (young people and statutory temporary accommodation) and is fundamental in providing a responsive service for people who are homeless. Many of these changes have taken place over the last few years but need formal recognition.

 

Additional documents:

Decision:

Resolved: That the Peasholme Centre be repositioned to align with other CYC hostels and provide an entry level service.

Reason: To ensure the council is able to respond effectively to emergency homelessness and continues meet its statutory responsibilities and supports the most vulnerable in society

 

Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report that proposed a subtle repositioning of the accommodation services offered at Peasholme Centre. This would include an entry point service which would align it with other CYC hostel provision (young people and statutory temporary accommodation) and was fundamental in providing a responsive service for people who were homeless.

 

Officers gave an update and confirmed the proposals to reposition the Peasholme Centre would provide consistency and would ensure City of York Council had access to emergency beds in youth homeless, single homeless and statutory homeless services.

 

The Executive Member noted that the Peasholme Centre would no longer be used as a stepping stone service and would reduce the need for people to move several times between hostel/supported housing services.

 

Resolved: That the Peasholme Centre be repositioned to align with other CYC hostels and provide an entry level service.

Reason: To ensure the council is able to respond effectively to emergency homelessness and continues meet its statutory responsibilities and supports the most vulnerable in society
