Provision of accommodation & prevention of homelessness for 16/17 year olds: Statutory Guidance 10/05/2018 Labelled as Legislation

The Government have issued updated the statutory guidance setting out the respective duties of children's services and housing services to 16 and 17 year old children who are homeless or threatened with homelessness.


This guidance has been issued jointly by the Secretary of State for Education and the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government. It revises the guidance that was issued in April 2010.


The guidance was originally issued following the judgment by the House of Lords in the case of R (G) v London Borough of Southwark (2009). It has now been updated to reflect changes in homelessness and children's legislation. The Guidance re-emphasises the essential need for Children's and Housing Services to work together to plan and provide services and prevent young people being passed back and forth between services.
