Memorandum of Understanding to support joint action on improving health through the home for Nottingham
Central Government has consistently stressed it is committed to tackling youth homelessness. The need for a joint protocol is further strengthened by reference to Lord Laming's report following the Victoria Climbie tragedy. The purpose of the protocol is to promote joint working between staff working in children's services and housing agencies to ensure suitable provision of support, advice and housing for children and young people in Nottingham who are homeless or threatened with homelessness.
Being homeless at any age is a traumatic experience, but young people aged 16-17 who have been told to leave home face a frightening time trying to access safe support. The best place for most young people is at home and most young people and families can resolve their difficulties with help. In exceptional situations this is not possible and this guidance seeks to clarify what young people (and those services working with young people to support them) can expect if they make contact with Nottingham City Council (NCC). Nottingham City Council recognises and accepts that it has a corporate responsibility towards young people with regard to housing and homelessness issues and, through the joint protocol (Nottingham City Council Joint Protocol for Children and Young People in Need of Housing), aims to provide an effective joint working approach to ensure the delivery of services meets local demand (within available resources).
The Tenancy Strategy has been developed to provide a guide as to the kind of tenancies available to be granted, the circumstances in which a particular tenancy shall be issued, and the length of tenancy term. The strategy has been developed in partnership with Broxtowe Borough Council, Gedling Borough Council and Nottingham City Council. As such, Registered Providers working in those areas should have regard to its contents.
This is the three-year plan of NottinghamÂ¿s Housing Strategic Partnership, one of the theme partnerships of One Nottingham. In this plan we set out our approach to the housing market in the next three years, identifying the interventions which will deliver positive housing outcomes for our citizens. Although this plan is about housing interventions, its impact will be felt across a much broader range of aspects of NottinghamÂ¿s wellbeing. By delivering housing and housing related activity, we can have a positive impact on the economy of the city, the health of citizens and the local environment. This is why the plan is so closely linked to the Nottingham Plan to 2020: it represents housingÂ¿s contribution to that overall plan.
