Choice matters. It is fundamental for our wellbeing and our belief in our ability to shape our own lives according to our preferences. There are many factors that influence the choices we make which are unique to us and based on our own experiences and circumstances. People with a housing concern or crisis experience a system of limited resources and options which means hard decisions. And so while continuing to improve the housing and support options that are needed to match what people want – we need to ensure that people affected by homelessness have access to the same options as other members of the public and enabled to choose the right option for them.
