Providing accommodation to those in need

Following a request from central government that people who are either homeless or sleeping rough should be found temporary accommodation for the duration of the COVID 19 lockdown, both Broadland and South Norfolk Councils have taken action.

Director of Place, Phil Courtier said: “Both Councils have consistently offered the highest level of housing services, ensuring that those in most need receive support. It’s vital in our fight against the spread of the virus that no-one should face a lack of suitable accommodation during the COVID 19 outbreak and it is our aim to provide people with a settled place to live, for the duration of the lockdown.”

At the moment, a number of Broadland and South Norfolk residents are being housed in bed and breakfast accommodation. This accommodation is not designed to support people for long periods of time and is not an ideal place to live, especially for families, while having to keep to social distancing guidance.
