The Kerslake Commission’s Final Report has examined what system change is needed to embed the lessons learnt from the emergency response to rough sleeping, addressing both the positives and the problems exacerbated by the pandemic. Importantly, the report also highlights recommendations called for prior to the pandemic, which remain fundamental to the goal of ending rough sleeping. 

Everyone has a responsibility to adopt a consistent and collaborative approach to support people to live their best life. Preventing, alleviating and supporting recovery from homelessness and rough sleeping should be a shared ambition that cuts across all agencies, and cannot fall on one sector. When we work together it is remarkable what can be achieved. This is very much a collective effort. Although the following recommendations highlight specific actors, this is to illuminate a leading role, not an exclusive one. Every one of these recommendations requires supporting actors to fully engage since – as has been made clear throughout evidence to the Commission – ending rough sleeping requires an integrated, system-wide approach.
