Meeting housing need and reducing homelessness is vital.
Recent figures show there were 1.15 million households waiting for a home in the social rented sector last year, with only 290,000 homes made available.*
The Homelessness Reduction Act requires councils to support vulnerable people sooner, in order to prevent homelessness. Processes, procedures, information being collected and statutory returns are all change as a result.
Our Homelessness module provides the necessary tools to manage cases going forward. Its flexible design will not only support your compliance journey today, but it can handle future requirements as the landscape changes.
The Homelessness module:
- Improves temporary accommodation tenancy management
- Supports your compliance journey with MHCLG code of guidance
- Empowers you to personalise action plans online
- Reduces administration via automatic creation of statutory reporting
- Integrates with all Abritas Housing modules.
Civica has provided high quality, easy to use prevention and homeless solutions for many years. LB Sutton use the Homeless, Advice and Prevention modules to manage our cases and create statistics required for the P1E. I've been working with Civica on the new software development to meet the requirements of the new Act and have no hesitation in upgrading to the new Homeless Reduction Module.
