Abstract

This chapter examines the impact of sustainable partnership responses to prevent homelessness and discharges from other institutions. It focuses on one of the largest local councils in the UK (Leeds City Council) to explore how homelessness as a key strategic priority for the council is addressed to prevent significant social impacts for the individual and the city. Thirteen semi-structured interviews were conducted with partner stakeholders, including the probation service, prison, housing services, health and charities. Empirical findings revealed that despite increasing demands on organisations and partnerships and the constant need to transform to meet changing priorities, the potential for the partnerships to achieve effective place-based governance to deliver sustainable social change is not fully maximised. This could be achieved through self-review to target resources, empower the workforce and integrate strategic goals into their performance management to enable partnerships to learn, develop and celebrate success together.
