Presentation, from In Control's Big Event 2010, about
homelessness and personal budgets in the City of London.
Staff from homelessness charity
Broadway, discuss how personal budgets have been used in the City
of London to reach entrenched rough sleepers and support them to
find new lives off the street.
In Control is working hard to ensure that all people who need
support can have access to Personal Budgets and control the support
they need.In 2008, In Control successfully argued for the inclusion
of personal budgets in the Government's rough sleepers strategy
'No one left out'.
Since then, supported by Dept of Communities and Local Government,
In Control has worked in partnership with The City of London
Corporation and London based charity, Broadway, to explore ways
that personal budgets might help long-term rough sleepers to
find a new life away off the streets.
The project is proving to be a remarkable success and is having
positive outcomes for many of those involved. The Joseph
Roundtree Foundation has published a report on the work and it
atracted much media intrest.
