Why is ACTion Glos needed?

There has been growing awareness of a small group of homeless individuals in Gloucestershire experiencing overlapping and challenging issues such as offending, drug and alcohol misuse and poor mental health.  There is a concern that these individuals with complex and multiple needs may ‘fall between the gaps’ in policy and/or be channelled into separate and uncoordinated services.  As a consequence, a different and innovative approach to engage with and improve the outcomes for this group of people is now required.  The Gloucestershire Commissioning Partnership was awarded funding from DCLG to commission a 3.5 years payment by results service.  From October 2017 ACTion Glos will provide intensive support to 110 entrenched rough sleepers and repeat users of homeless services across Gloucestershire.  A range of innovative support methods will help those who have not responded to previous and traditional services.  Its purpose is to help each individual to access and sustain housing and wider outcomes.
