This ten year plan describes how we are going to tackle homelessness in Wales until 2019.

This Ten Year Plan sets out some guiding principles for the development and delivery of homelessness services. It is a working document and will be continuously reviewed.  At the time of writing, there is a downturn in the global economy, the impact of which is likely to continue to be felt over the coming years.  This will pose particular challenges and make it even more important that services for those at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness, are as effective as possible.

The strategic aims underlying this Plan are:

  • Preventing homelessness wherever possible;
  • Working across organisational and policy boundaries;
  • Placing the service user at the centre of service delivery;
  • Ensuring social inclusion and equality of access to services; 
  • Making the best use of resources.
