Homelessness Strategy 2018 – 2023

Homelessness and especially manifested and prolonged homelessness has a big impact on our borough and the quality of life for everybody in the borough.

It has emerged that some homeless groups now start to wear high-viz vests and look like officials of some sort and congregate around certain areas with aggressive begging becoming concerning.

Tower Hamlets Council currently holds a consultation on the forthcoming strategy to tackle the issue. A decision is due by 28. November 2018.

Consultation via the

  • homelessness Partnership Board
  • Mail out and presentation through the Tower Hamlets Housing Forum
  • Workshops with residents
  • online consultation with the general public, draft document and survey
  • internal Briefings

An Equality Impact Assessment is due by 17. September 2018

Any additional information can be obtained through mark.baigent@towerhamlets.gov.uk

I strongly recommend that all residents take part on the online consultation once available.
