Worcester City Council has implemented all ten recommendations made in an independent review into the death of a rough sleeper in the city.
The review was conducted following the death of Cardon Banfield, 74, who died in 2016.
As a result, the council and its partner agencies have improved their rough sleeper services, including implementing an alert system to better keep track of rough sleepers.
The council has also provided extra resources to engage with entrenched rough sleepers and helped those new to the streets to move into temporary accommodation.
Cllr James Stanley, chair of the communities committee, said: ‘Worcester City Council commissioned the independent review into Mr Banfield’s death to establish if there were lessons that could be learnt and this report confirms that all the review’s recommendations have been implemented.
‘Support for rough sleepers in the city and county has been boosted over the last two years, with the City Council leading bids that have secured an additional £1.1m in Government funding.’
