Formed in 2010, the Ministerial Working Group on Homelessness promised to bring departments together to ensure that everyone in government played their part in tackling both the causes and consequences of homelessness. This report summarises the work of this group since its inception.

The report tells the story of the progress made, increasing investment in homelessness services, providing strategic support to help authorities deliver effective prevention services, and testing innovative new approaches. It also takes a longer term view and sets out aspirations for building on this work to help some of society’s most vulnerable people in the next parliament and beyond. The report ends with a set of call for evidence questions in order to explore how coordination of services on a local level could be improved by encouraging innovative new approaches through a payment by results model.
