Abstract

Shelter recently published a report, From Pillar To Post: Failing to meet the support and housing needs of vulnerable people, which showed just how important it is that agencies work closely together. A survey of Shelter's network of housing aid centres and projects found that housing and social services departments are failing to work together, and the needs of service users are not being met. Guidance to local authorities encouraging departments to work together is not enough; a new duty on local authorities is needed.
