Rapid Rehousing Transition Plans sub-group


This group supports local authorities and partners to transition to a culture of rapid rehousing by default. It will do this by:

  • Considering what local authorities and partners need in terms of guidance, support and active learning to help facilitate the development of rapid rehousing transition plans (RRTPs);
  • Encouraging local authorities and partners to consider the systems and culture change that is required within local authorities;
  • Engaging with Registered Social Landlords to promote joint working;
  • Promoting partnership working across the public sector both at a strategic and operational level to support the embedding of rapid rehousing; and
  • Working with local authorities and partners to support the scaling up of Housing First.
  • Taking the lead in the communication and promotion of RRTP and Housing First.
