star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to reducing homelessness and rough sleeping and has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period.</p><p>The Homelessness Reduction Act, is the most ambitious reform to homelessness legislation in decades. It came into force in April 2018 and transforms the culture of homelessness service delivery. For the first time, local authorities, public services, and the third sector will work together to actively prevent homelessness for people at risk, irrespective of whether they are a family or single person, what has put them at risk, or if they have a local connection to the area.</p><p>Although our data is still experimental the indications are that people who do not have priority need are being assisted by local authorities to prevent or relieve their homelessness. During the first 3 quarters for which we have published data 189,760 households have had a duty to prevent or relieve homelessness accepted, and only 6,020 households have been issued with a 'non priority homeless' decision. Our data indicates that less than 10 per cent of all applicants are homeless due to Domestic Abuse, and local authorities will be more inclined to provide accommodation to victims of abuse than others where there are competing demands for accommodation that is available to single people. People who are found to have no priority need are still entitled to assistance to relieve their homelessness.</p><p>The Homelessness Reduction Act is still very new and we expect outcomes to improve as the new duties are better understood. It is also important to understand that local authorities are adjusting to new reporting requirements that affect data quality, which is why MHCLG published data is experimental.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We remain focused on ensuring our smooth and orderly withdrawal from the EU with a deal as soon as possible. Parliament has rejected leaving without a deal multiple times, although this remains the legal default at the end of the extension period. In light of the agreed extension, we will make sensible decisions about the timing and pace at which some of this work is progressing, but we continue to prepare for all Brexit scenarios. Ministers continue to review these preparations to ensure the UK is prepared for all Brexit scenarios. <br> <br> As a responsible Government, we've been preparing to minimise any disruption in the event of no deal for nearly three years. We are putting in place a range of mitigations, these include ensuring we have comprehensive contingency plans to enable us to support local authorities, communities and local economies in a no deal scenario; a programme of work to understand and manage the implications on our housing delivery objectives; and managing our exit from existing European funding programmes, progressing work on the replacement UK-Shared Prosperity Fund. <br> <br> The Treasury has allocated over £4.2 billion of additional funding to departments and Devolved Administrations for EU exit preparations so far. This breaks down as £412 million over the spending review period for the Department for Exiting the European Union, Department for International Trade and the Foreign &amp; Commonwealth Office (Autumn Statement 2016); £286 million of additional funding for 2017/18 (a full breakdown of which can be found in Supplementary Estimates 2017/18); over £1.5 billion for 2018/19 (Supplementary Estimates 2018/19); and over £2 billion for 2019/20 (Main Estimates 2019/20). <br> <br> This funding is to cover all exit scenarios and is in addition to departmental efforts to reprioritise from business as usual toward preparations for the UK's departure from the EU. Work on no-deal exit preparations cannot be readily separated from other EU exit work, given the significant overlap in plans in many cases.</p>

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, committing to end rough sleeping for good, with the aim of halving it by 2022. The strategy 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.</p><p>The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period. This year, Rough Sleeping Initiative investment totals £46 million and has been allocated to 246 areas – providing funding for an estimated 750 additional staff and over 2,600 bed spaces, in addition to the £30 million allocated last year to those areas with the highest numbers of rough sleepers through the same initiative.</p><p>The Chancellor has said that there will be a Spending Review this year, and the Government will be looking at long term funding for homelessness and rough sleeping services as part of that. Ministers have made very clear that homelessness and rough sleeping is a key priority for the Government. We are working with other Government departments to assess what more can be done to combat rough sleeping and wider homelessness. This work is being overseen by the Ministerial Rough Sleeping and Homelessness Reduction Taskforce which includes HM Treasury and will play an important part of our preparations for the forthcoming Spending Review.</p>
