This post provides an opportunity to support Newcastle City Council in being a Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) Early Adopter Homelessness Prevention Trailblazer. This coincides with preparing Newcastle to meet the requirements of the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017.

Our aim is, wherever possible, to prevent homelessness at the earliest stage by coordinating responses to help residents to sustain the foundations for a stable life: somewhere to live, an income, financial inclusion and employment opportunities. To do this, the council works with over 100 agencies as part of our Active Inclusion Newcastle partnership approach which aims to make it everyone’s business to prevent homelessness.

We hope that this opportunity will attract interest from people who are committed to preventing homelessness and transforming public services. Our aim is to better predict the risk of homelessness and to develop a culture change in the delivery of support to the vulnerable, based on adapting services to make sustaining independence the norm and responding to crisis homelessness the exception.

You must be able to demonstrate an understanding both of the importance of the above foundations for a stable life and of how to evaluate existing provision and make the best use of the resources in the city so that they work together for the benefit of all.
