Knowsley Council: Health and Social Care L36

Location: UK » North West » L
Sector: Health, Social care

Service: Externally Commissioned Services (incl Care Management and Safeguarding)
Title: Reduction in tenancy services to excluded groups.
Impact: Some services will operate at reduced capacity - including decommissioning of the following services:• Teenage Parent accommodation service - Roughdale Court• HIV and Aids floating support service• Support to dispersed accommodation for Young People• Homeless prevention, Young Person‟s mediation service• The housing related support services provided by Centre 63The reduction or withdrawal of these services will lead to reduced support to prevent homelessness and tenancy breakdown (including evictions and abandonments) and alcohol related hospital admissions. These options could also impact on the delivery of the troubled family and community cohesion agendas. Some of the services are currently underused and the expansion and development of targeted and sustainable volunteer services and integrated area based working would mitigate some of the risks presented to individuals. There are a range of service changes being proposed so there will need to be robust consultation processes.
