Rapid Rehousing Transition Plan

Rapid Rehousing Transition Plan 2019-2024

This is our first Rapid Rehousing Transition Plan (RRTP) and sets out how we will work as a partnership to be bold and act wisely to bring about a step change in addressing homelessness.

We will take a planned and measured approach, setting targets annually, to achieve the South Lanarkshire RRTP vision:  ‘Homelessness in South Lanarkshire is significantly reduced, with homeless households moving to a settled home as quickly as possible’

Co-produced with partner organisations, the RRTP includes five high-level and ambitious priority objectives that we aim to achieve in South Lanarkshire over 2019-2024, which are:

  • Significantly reduce the overall level of homelessness
  • Significantly reduce the time spent by households in temporary accommodation and minimise moves before moving to settled homes
  • Improve and increase the provision of housing support for households to live independently within communities
  • Expand the scope and capacity of our Housing First approach to be the first response for households with multiple complex needs
  • Enhance integration and partnership working to embed RRTP through a whole systems approach

This approach aligns with both the Scottish Government’s national vision and principles for Rapid Rehousing, and South Lanarkshire’s Local Housing Strategy 2017-2022.
