Newcastle’s Homelessness Prevention Trailblazer

Newcastle’s Homelessness Prevention Trailblazer

Newcastle has a relatively good record on preventing homelessness. The strategy adopted has been based on long-term committed political leadership, council housing, investment in accommodation, advice and support services, and an infrastructure to facilitate consensus and partnership working.

the Active Inclusion Newcastle partnership approach was established in 2013 as part of improving Newcastle Council’s responses to the government’s welfare reforms. The Homelessness Prevention Trailblazer funding has been used to support a public service transformation programme from 1 January 2017 to 31 March 2019. This has focused on system change and strengthening a citywide culture that makes the prevention of homelessness everyone’s business and homelessness crisis the exception.
