star this property answer text <p>This Government is clear that one person without a home is one too many and we are committed to preventing and reducing homelessness and rough sleeping. Time spent in temporary accommodation means people are getting help and it ensures no family is without a roof over their head.</p><p>We have put in place an ambitious programme of work to support households out of Temporary Accommodation. The Homelessness Reduction Act, which came into force in April 2018, bolsters the support offer for families and individuals by ensuring that there are more opportunities for local authorities to put in place bespoke interventions to either prevent homelessness from happening in the first place, or relieve them from a homelessness crisis where it does occur.</p><p>We have also put in place targeted funding streams focused on reducing the number of households in Temporary Accommodation as part of our £1.2 billion spending programme. For example, earlier this year, we announced £19.5 million for 54 projects through the Private Rented Sector Access Fund that will enable thousands of households to be supported away from Temporary Accommodation and into long term Private Rented accommodation.</p><p>We have also committed £37.8 million of funding to launch Capital Letters, a collaboration between London boroughs which will enable them to become more efficient in securing accommodation within London, reduce the cost to local authorities of procuring accommodation and enable them to place households closer to home.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The fund will cover reasonable costs associated with the removal and replacement of unsafe Aluminium Composite Material (ACM) cladding systems. This replicates the scope of the social sector fund that has been operational since last year. Non ACM cladding systems or other structural works not directly related to the remediation of ACM cladding systems will not be part of the fund. Government intervention to provide funding for the removal of unsafe ACM cladding is wholly exceptional. It is based on the unparalleled fire risk ACM poses and very real public safety concerns.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to reducing homelessness and rough sleeping. No one should ever have to sleep rough. That is why last summer we published the cross-government Rough Sleeping Strategy. This sets out an ambitious £100 million package to help people who sleep rough now, but also puts in place the structures that will end rough sleeping once and for all. The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period.</p><p>The Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) does not ‘allocate’ bed spaces and specialist support staff to local authorities, but funds based on the bids that the local authorities themselves submitted (in some cases with the support of our expert rough sleeping advisers). We recognise that rough sleeping impacts different areas in different ways, and so we work to ensure local areas can respond flexibly to the unique challenges they face.</p><p>Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, in conjunction with Doncaster and Rotherham, was successful in bidding for RSI funding in 2019/20. They have been allocated £328,038 this year for the staff and services detailed below.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong> Intervention </strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Funding </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>3 rough sleeping prevention workers</p></td><td><p>£114,117</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>1.5 mental health practitioners</p></td><td><p>£78,000</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Enhanced outreach services</p></td><td><p>£83,531</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Rough Sleeping Coordinator</p></td><td><p>£52,390</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Total RSI funding for 2019/20</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>£</strong> <strong>328,038</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Overall this funding is expected to provide at least 8 additional staff across these areas.</p><p>The remaining authority in South Yorkshire, Sheffield, was allocated £363,309 in 2018/19, and £412,926 in 2019/20 through the RSI. This funding is expected to provide a total of 37 additional bed spaces and 9 staff over the two years. As a whole South Yorkshire is expected to deliver 37 bed spaces and at least 17 staff through the RSI in its first two years.</p><p>In its first year, RSI funding provided over 1,750 new bed spaces and 500 staff across the country. This year we have expanded the initiative with an investment of £46 million providing funding for an estimated 2,600 bed spaces and 750 staff. £12 million of this is for areas new to the programme, bringing the total authorities funded to 246.</p><p>More information can be found on the gov.uk website: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/james-brokenshire-confirms-funding-to-help-people-off-the-streets" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/james-brokenshire-confirms-funding-to-help-people-off-the-streets</a></p>

Representatives from the sector were invited to discuss the issues facing migrant women affected by domestic abuse and the opportunities to tackle these issues.</p><p>The Government recognises that there are victims of domestic abuse who need additional support independently from that of their spouse / partner. We will continue to engage with domestic abuse survivors and representatives from the sector as part of our further work on the Bill.</p><p>The Destitute Domestic Violence Concession (DDVC), enables eligible migrants the option of claiming welfare benefits. This is to provide immediate crisis support to eligible migrants who claim to be victims of domestic abuse and are destitute as a result. To be eligible, applicants must be the spouse, or partner of someone who is British or permanently settled in the United Kingdom.</p><p>We have also provided Southall Black Sisters with £250 000, via the Tampon Tax, to pilot a fund to assist those who have no recourse to public funds and are suffering abuse. The findings from that project will help guide future policy reviews.</p><p>As part of our consultation on the future delivery of domestic abuse support in accommodation based services, we propose introducing a statutory duty, underpinned by statutory guidance which will clearly outline the expectations Government has for local authorities in delivering the duty. This includes outlining specific consideration of the support needs of diverse groups of victims.</p><p>We will work with local authorities to understand whether the new duty will incur additional costs and to ensure that local authorities are adequately funded to discharge it. We estimate an early broad annual cost of around £90 million which the Secretary of State communicated to the House of Commons on the 13 May. However, the full costs will be informed by the consultation and taken into the Spending Review.</p>
