Tamworth Borough Council's homelessness service is changing

In April 2017 the Homeless Reduction Bill became an Act of Parliament, signalling the most significant change to homelessness law for a number of years.  The new legislation places a duty on councils to help prevent the homelessness of all families and single people regardless of priority need, but who are eligible and threatened with homelessness

Key measures in the Act include

An extension of the period in which the authority should treat someone as threatened with homelessness from 28 to 56 days
