The London Borough of Newham had one of the worst records for rough sleeping in 2018, and lacked an up to date Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy. Compiled over four years of engagement with the borough, this report tracks the steps taken to build a locally co-produced strategy and action plan, leading to a new set of pathways to assist people sleeping rough. This work included extensive additional data collection, monitoring of delivery and performance, and a new contractual structure aimed at bringing an integrated and client-focused set of services. These developments were in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and government's “Everyone In” programme. Consideration is given to the drivers of change, the current much improved outcomes, and continuing risks and opportunities for the borough.
