The Homelessness Reduction Act of 2017 is a groundbreaking piece of legislation, establishing new guidelines for how the United Kingdom interacts with its homeless populations. The goal of this project was to examine those new guidelines and evaluate their implications. This was done by reviewing background information and similar legislation, thoroughly explaining the changes the 2017 Act will make, reviewing the opinions of several stakeholders about the Act, including its criticisms, and drawing conclusions about the 2017 Act and what aspects will need to be monitored for evaluation of its success.
