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>

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>
