Kerslake Commission on Homelessness and Rough Sleeping: Progress Report
The Kerslake Commission on Homelessness and Rough Sleeping has launched a progress report this week.
The commission was convened in March 2021 with the purpose of assessing the public health emergency response to rough sleeping during the pandemic. The final report was published in September last year and made 48 recommendations to a variety of stakeholders including central and local government, health bodies, and the housing and homelessness sector to inform future practice and set out a roadmap towards ending rough sleeping.
The Commission’s new report tracks the progress that has been made on these recommendations over the past year, highlighting where positive change has taken place; where further action is needed; and where external circumstances are now threatening the shared goal of ending rough sleeping.
