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 set 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 current spending review period. In 2018/19, £30 million in Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) funding provided 1,750 additional bed spaces and 500 rough sleeping support staff. Government support is expanding as we move into 2019/20, with £46 million for the RSI including £12 million to new areas. We expect this to deliver an additional 750 staff and 2,600 bed spaces this year.</p><p>We are currently making preparations across Government to prepare for the forthcoming Spending Review, which includes specific work on Youth Homelessness. 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>

star this property answer text <p>The Children and Families Act 2014 reinforced the presumption of mainstream education for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). The accompanying SEND code of practice provides detailed guidance to schools about how to support children with SEND.</p><p> </p><p>We have announced funding for new training places for over 600 new Educational Psychologists who help ensure that children with SEND get the support they need in school.</p><p> </p><p>We are promoting the increased development of mainstream units and resourced provision through recent capital expenditure and in our guidance to new bidders for mainstream free schools. In December we announced a further £100 million top-up to the Special Provision Capital Fund for local authorities in 2019-20. This takes our total investment to £365 million across 2018-21. This funding can be used for more places in SEND units and resourced provision in mainstream schools, colleges or in special schools.</p><p> </p><p>We are funding the Whole School SEND Consortium to embed SEND into school improvement planning and Continuing Professional Development (CPD). New SEND regional leads are bringing together practitioners and networks in their local area to build a community of practice and facilitate the exchange of knowledge and expertise.</p><p> </p><p>The new Ofsted common inspection framework, introduced from September 2019, will put more focus on SEND, rewarding schools for their work with pupils who need extra support. In addition, local area SEND inspections by Ofsted and the Care Quality Commission are considering how effectively the local area identifies, meets the needs of, and improves the outcomes for the wide range of different groups of children and young people who have SEND.</p><p> </p><p>A call for evidence on how the SEND funding system operates was recently announced on 3 May 2019 to help the department understand how the current available funding is distributed, and what improvements to the financial arrangements could be made in future.</p>

They aim to work together to understand and address key local challenges, including helping to tackle local skills shortages. SAPs will address both immediate needs and challenges and look at what is required to help local areas adapt to future labour market changes and to grasp future opportunities. This will help colleges, universities and other providers deliver the skills required by employers, now and in the future.</p>
