The Group makes 12 recommendations for actions covering the two key themes of strategic and organisational responses, and service design and delivery.

It calls for:
* A joint strategic response at national level to be developed
* A joint strategic response at a local level to be developed (responsibility sitting with Alcohol and Drug Partnerships (ADPs)
* Recognition of the importance of investing to save over the long term
* A joint operational response at local level to be developed
* More flexible approaches in rural and island areas
* Service development and commissioning to be based on evidence of good practice
* An individual’s priorities to be the starting point for the design and delivery of services and support
* Ongoing evaluation of services in this field to be managed through the ADP planning and monitoring processes
* Targeted service user participation and involvement to be supported
* Training across homelessness, housing, alcohol and drug fields to be supported in statutory and commissioned services
* The stigmatisation of these populations to be addressed at a local and national level.
