Cambridge City Council

Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Strategy consultation

We are developing a strategy for tackling homelessness and rough sleeping.

Rough sleeping and begging are visible outcomes of homelessness, but homelessness affects many more people than we see on the streets of our city.

Many individuals and families do not have a settled home to call their own, or live in precarious temporary accommodation. Many families are feeling the effects of coronavirus on their livelihoods, and might be more at risk of homelessness as a result.

If you live or work in Cambridge, we want to hear your thoughts about our strategy to deal with the problem and the actions we propose to take. Please read the draft strategy and action plan, and complete our online survey.

The consultation closes at 11.59pm on 6 December 2020.

If you have any questions about the strategy or consultation, contact us at or 01223 457918.

You can download a printable version of the survey if you prefer. Post your response to Housing Advice Service, Cambridge City Council, PO Box 700, Cambridge CB1 0JH.

Your responses will help us review the draft strategy. When ready, we will seek approval for the final version through our formal decision-making process.
