How is the Cabinet Secretary monitoring the duty of local authorities to provide emergency accommodation to ensure it is complied with in all local authorities?

Answered by Cabinet Secretary for Housing, Local Government and Planning | Answered on 11/06/2024

The Welsh Government works closely with all local authorities to ensure the provision of appropriate homelessness prevention and relief measures in line with their statutory obligations set out in the Code of Guidance on the allocation of accommodation and homelessness.

The Welsh Government’s Ending Homelessness High Level Action Plan sets out our ambition to reduce our dependency on temporary accommodation as part of our transformational shift towards rapid rehousing.
