Homelessness Triage Tool

Those suffering with homelessness and with the threat of becoming homeless can now take advantage of a new online homelessness triage tool facilitated by the SDS in partnership with local authorities in Kent.

This tool aims to advise users of the next steps they can take to manage their homelessness issues by minimising users’ expectations that their local council will assist them and where necessary signposting them to organisations and local services who will be able to offer support. The tool went ‘live’ during the last week of March with 6 councils in Kent and will be rolled out to the rest of Kent in due course. The link to the tool is currently offered from the individual council websites.
