Introduction

This consultation is seeking evidence on the impact the Homelessness Reduction Act has had and how it has been implemented across the country. 
Everyone deserves a decent, affordable and secure place to call home. Yet too many people live without the comfort of a home. We are committed to reducing all forms of homelessness and ending rough sleeping. Underpinning our work is the Homelessness Reduction Act (HRA), the most ambitious reform to homelessness legislation in decades. It is a key lever for reducing homelessness and helping to halve rough sleeping by 2022 and ending it altogether.
 
We want to ensure that this new legislation is working for all and that local government and its partners have the tools and support to effectively implement and operate the Act. We know that for many local housing authorities the Act requires a significant system change, and that work is still underway to embed and improve the delivery of the new duties.
