The History
  • Graeme Brown, director of Shelter Scotland, wrote in a letter to Inside Housing this week that it is ‘simply not credible’
  • “The Committee also considers that the Scottish Government should consider the development of a measurement tool for homelessness prevention work”
  • Collection is led by LA demand. A number already have systems in place..
  • Some questions influenced from the English pro forma in the P1E, but case level
  • Happens upstream of homelessness. Therefore needs to sit outwith homelessness recording (the HL1).
  • As far as possible, we want to measure outcomes, not activity.
  • Final consultation Jan/ Feb 2013.
