Update on Establishing a Multi Disciplinary Team and a Homeless Health Centre

In May 2021, Cabinet approved the further development of a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) to better address the health needs of individuals who are homeless. 

Cabinet also approved the acquisition of St Stephens Church Hall, Bournemouth, to be used as a Homeless Inclusion Health Centre (‘Health Hub’) within an approved budget.

Programme governance has been established for this work, the MDT is developing well with various partners engaged, and conveyancing and the required due diligence continues in relation to the acquisition of St Stephens Church Hall.

Options are set out in the confidential Appendix A for the acquisition, refurbishment and management of the building which could bring additional investment requirements for the Council and therefore need further due consideration.
