Gwent homelessness strategy

Preventing and addressing homelessness remains a high priority for the Welsh and Local Government in Wales.

The Housing (Wales) Act 2014 requires all Welsh local authorities to undertake a homelessness review and using the results, produce a four year homelessness strategy to be operational by 31 December 2018 (see Sections 50-2 of the Act). This document reviews homelessness in five local authority areas:

  • Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council

  • Caerphilly County Borough Council

  • Monmouthshire County Council

  • Newport City Council

  • Torfaen County Borough Council

Each of the five authorities has worked together to take both a regional and local approach to this work. As well as making better use of resources, it is anticipated a broader view will help create further opportunities for working together in the future, supporting consistency and quality in the delivery of homelessness services across the region.
