South Gloucestershire Council is currently reviewing its Homelessness Strategy. The strategy sets out our priorities to prevent and tackle homelessness in the district.
We have identified a number of priorities and actions that we would like to include. Before we adopt our new strategy, we are keen to get your views on the strategy and whether you think we have got our priorities right.

We are looking for people who have a spare bedroom and would like to get paid to care for somebody who needs support with daily living tasks. We provide free in house training and free DBS check.
