The evidence base
An extensive evidence-base has been built up in preparing the strategy and it has been used to help set the overall priorities contained within it. The evidence-base is also intended to be a reference tool, whereby information on the housing and support needs of particular client groups can be accessed. The intention is that the evidence base will be regularly reviewed, so that later annual plans are based on the most current and relevant information.
