Commissioning guidance on drug and alcohol support in homelessness services

Share this

Homeless Link is funded from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to produce a series of good practice resources to help services to respond to, and prevent, homelessness. They are currently developing new guidance for homelessness accommodation services to support people who are dependent on alcohol and/or drugs.

The final resource will provide good practice guidance for commissioners, housing providers and service managers so that they can design and deliver accommodation services without excluding people who are homeless and dependent on alcohol and/or drugs.

Homeless Link are looking for consultants to deliver this work – if you are interested please download the Consultancy specification (pdf).
