Homelessness Gold Standard
March 2014

Councils aiming to reach Gold Standard status for homelessness services can now access comprehensive support from LHS.

The National Practitioner Support Service (NPSS) has set 10 key criteria that must be achieved by councils in order to be awarded the Gold Standard.

LHS systems help councils control and manage their homelessness service effectively and efficiently. As a by-product, all 10 Gold Standard criteria are fully supported.

The new Gold Standard was launched in April and is a sector led peer review scheme designed to help local authorities deliver more efficient and cost effective homelessness prevention services.

The challenge follows a 10 step continuous improvement approach that starts with a pledge for local authorities aspiring to ‘strive for continuous improvement in front line housing services' and culminates in an application for the Gold Standard Challenge.

LHS systems actually help to support councils trying to achieve the Gold Standard by deploying its technology in a modular framework creating a unified approach to delivering support directly to staff and customers.
