Purpose of Report: This report sets out the results of the review of homelessness rough sleeping resettlement pathways which provides emergency /temporary accommodation and support via residential placements for everyone over the age of 16 who needs it.

The report outlines the continued move towards a tailored, person-centred, strength-based approach to resettlement and makes recommendations to reshape existing provision to deliver long term improvements to the lives of care experienced young people as they proceed into adulthood and to vulnerable, homeless adults and young people.
