The Department of Environment, Heritage & Local Government has provided Local Authorities with a broad guideline Framework for implementing the National Homeless Strategy 2009 – 2013. All key aspects of this National Homeless Strategy have been placed on a statutory footing since February 1st 2010 following the commencement of Part 2, Chapter 6 of the Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009. These new provisions will help to make homelessness a more central element of the housing au¬thority functions, promote a more planned approach to homeless services throughout the country and help housing authorities to ensure that decisions on services are based on criteria of evidenced need, value for money and achieving the best outcomes for homeless people.

This Homeless Framework Plan which the Mid West Management Group of the Mid West Homeless Forum is recommending for adoption by the Local Authorities of Limerick City and County, and the Counties of North Tipperary and Clare. When this plan has been adopted by each Authority the Frame-work can then be used a blueprint for a comprehensive review of services and development of specific Regional & Local Homeless Action Plans.

This Mid West Homeless Framework Plan provides an ideal opportunity for both the statutory sec-tor and voluntary groups to work together to develop best practice guidelines for homeless services throughout the region. The title of this document is “more than just a roof”, the four Local Authorities and the HSE can at times just provide a roof, this document will provide the grounding for the other key supports that homeless persons require on a daily basis and help eliminate long term homelessness in the Mid West Region.
