Action on the issues of poverty and homelessness being experienced by people within Crawley and the surrounding area.

The key aim of the network is to provide an inclusive forum for organisations dealing with poverty and homelessness within the borough together with housing providers, to discuss issues of concern, comment collectively on these issues to the Council and relevant agencies and, where appropriate, make recommendations for action.

The objectives are:

  • To express views and make recommendations as to the content of the Borough Homelessness Strategy;
  • To monitor the implementation of the recommendations of the Housing Inspectorate;
  • To provide feedback on the delivery of housing services in the Borough;
  • To express views on proposed service developments within the Borough;
  • To work collectively to improve local housing policy and practice.

In order to progress priorities, the issues will be developed by a small subgroup of those with relevant experience to devise an action plan which will be brought back to the wider forum. Members should be prepared to participate in working groups to achieve implementation.

The network meets regularly to cover a wide spectrum of topical issues ranging from Council homelessness strategies and general housing advice, through to current headline topics. At each meeting an information sharing session takes place so that members are kept up to date on each-other’s working activities.
