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>In its first year, our Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) provided over 1,750 new bed spaces and 500 staff. This year we have expanded the RSI with investment of £46 million for 246 areas – providing funding for an estimated 2,600 bed spaces and 750 staff.</p><p>The most recent figures, from the Official 2018 Rough Sleeping Snapshot, show that the number of people sleeping on our streets on a particular night has fallen for the first time in several years. The number of those sleeping rough on one night in 2018 is 2 per cent lower compared to the previous year. This follows year-on-year increases, with an average annual increase of nearly 16 per cent.</p><p>In areas where the Government has targeted funding and interventions through its RSI, the number of those reported as sleeping rough on a single night in 2018 fell by 19 per cent, compared to the national decrease of 2 per cent . This is in contrast to the overall 41 per cent increase in areas that were not part of the initiative, an encouraging sign of progress.</p><p>The RSI funds local authorities to provide specialist services to help the most vulnerable people in society off the streets. We will publish an evaluation later this year which will help to understand the impact of the initiative.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Safe and secure housing is a top priority for Government, and older tenants will benefit from recent legislation to bring about a new, fairer deal for both tenants and landlords as we strengthen all tenants' rights. This includes the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act, which complements existing enforcement activity by empowering all tenants to hold their landlords to account if they fail to provide and maintain quality accommodation, and the extension to mandatory licensing of high-risk houses in multiple occupation, bringing more properties into scope than ever before, while also introducing minimum room sizes.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Ensuring tenants in the private rented sector are protected from poor housing conditions is vital, so we have commissioned a review of the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) to assess how well it works in practice and make sure that it is fit for purpose. The first phase of the review is now complete, setting out recommendations which will inform the appropriate direction of the second phase - from a full root-and-branch revision of the HHSRS down to a simple refresh of the standard and its accompanying guidance.</p><p>In addition, we have brought in strong enforcement powers for local authorities to tackle those non-compliant landlord. These include the introduction of civil penalties of up to £30,000 as an alternative to prosecution; banning orders for rogue landlords and agents, in tandem with a database of rogue landlords and property agents to prevent serious offenders from letting properties; and extending rent repayment orders which require a landlord to repay a specified amount of rent to a local authority or a tenant, to cover, for example, illegal eviction or failure to comply with a statutory notice. This year we have awarded over £2.3 million in grant funding to local authorities to boost their enforcement work, fostering innovative approaches and sharing best practice to tackle the minority of landlords who deliberately flout the law.</p>

In addition, the Homelessness Reduction Act, the most ambitious reform to homelessness legislation in decades, has pledged a duty to refer on public services to refer those who are, or at risk of, homelessness to local authorities. The Homelessness Advice and Support Team supports implementation of the Homelessness Reduction Act and includes specific youth advisers to work closely with local authorities on issues around Youth Homelessness.</p>

We have worked closely with sector partners, drawing on their data, expertise and knowledge and taken account of the findings of an independent audit of provision of domestic abuse services across England, led by Ipsos MORI.</p><p>Following the review, we intend to consult on potential measures for sustainable delivery of support for victims and their children in accommodation-based services for domestic abuse across England shortly.</p>
