star this property answer text <p>MHCLG collects information on households in England who are classified as intentionally homeless i.e households who have lost accommodation as a result of actions that they took or failed to take. This may include households who have given up suitable accommodation without good reason or have been evicted due to rent arrears or other breach of tenancy conditions.</p><p>The number of households who have been classified as intentionally homeless in England for the last 5 years are below:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>2013/14</p></td><td><p>8530</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014/15</p></td><td><p>8990</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015/16</p></td><td><p>9560</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016/17</p></td><td><p>9860</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017/18</p></td><td><p>8700</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><br>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, the Rough Sleeping Initiative 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>
