Homelessness applications have risen dramatically in the past few years along with the challenges to local authority decisions.
Getting the law right at every level has never been more important and it isn’t just investigations officers who need a comprehensive knowledge of the law. Other staff in the chain, from the reception desk to ancillary services also feed into the home homelessness process.
The more informed everyone in that chain is the more successful a homelessness service will be
