unstar this property answer text <p>The reforms to the Social Fund in 2013 allowed local authorities in England and the devolved administrations in Scotland and Wales to deliver their own local provision for people who are in need of urgent help. Local authorities are best placed to decide how to target flexible help to support local welfare needs. The Government has no further plans to review this provision.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Our veterans play a vital role in keeping our country safe and many have dedicated their lives to the services. For those who fall on hard times it is only right that we give them all the support they need to put a roof over their head.</p><p>We recognise that there are limited statistics on homelessness; that is the why the MOD and MHCLG are working together to gather more comprehensive data on this issue. The Combined Homelessness and Information Network (CHAIN) statistics suggest that 3 per cent of the rough sleeping population in London have served in the Armed Forces and other independent research shows that the rough sleeping figures for veterans are around 3-4 per cent across the UK. The same research shows that an individual is less likely to be homeless if they have served in the Armed Forces.</p><p>There are, however, a number of existing support services available to veterans who are, or at risk of homelessness. This includes, the Veterans Gateway, an online web and telephone resource for veterans, within which is a housing specialist who has up-to-date information of any vacancies with the 4,000+ homes in the country specifically ringfenced for Veterans.</p><p>This is in addition to the £1.2 billion my Department has now committed to tackling all forms of homelessness and rough sleeping. This includes £1 million of specific funding targeted at ensuring veterans receive the right support and guidance required to ensure more veterans are prevented from becoming homeless.</p><p>In April 2018, we also introduced the Homelessness Reduction Act, its Duty to Refer requires public bodies to refer members of the armed forces, who maybe homeless or threatened with homelessness in England, to a local housing authority within 56 days, having gained the individual’s consent. A person who is vulnerable as a result of having been a member of Her Majesty’s regular armed forces (a veteran) has priority need for accommodation and will be housed by a local authority if they become homeless.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>It is recognised that better identification of the veteran community within and through data can lead to a greater understanding of their needs, trends and geographical distribution - which in turn will provide a more robust evidence base to inform policy making, enable planning and support service delivery.</p><p>The UK-wide Strategy for our Veterans champions the changing needs of the ex-Service community. Since Veterans draw on services from across Governments and Departments, implementation of the strategy will be across the three-sitting governments and across Whitehall Departments.</p><p>'Data on the Veteran Community' is one of the cross cutting factors of the Strategy and whilst it recognises that there is some reliable data collected across Government Departments, it can be fragmented, making analysis and prediction of needs difficult. The outcome we want by 2028 is for an enhanced collection across Government to better build an evidence base to identify and address the needs of veterans.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>Comparisons between entitlement in legacy benefits and Universal Credit fail to reflect that, until recently, people only claimed Universal Credit as a result of a change in their circumstances.</p><p> </p><p>It is important to remember that there are £2.4 billion of unclaimed benefits not going to the people who need them because they are unaware of how to claim, or that they may be entitled. Universal Credit makes sure that welfare payments reach those who need them most, and when we complete moving legacy benefit claimants over to Universal Credit, an estimated 700,000 more people will get paid their full entitlement because of Universal Credit.</p><p> </p><p>The Government have committed to spending in excess of £3 billion over 10 years on transitional protection for 1.1 million households. This will help fund assistance for those moving from Housing Benefit to Universal Credit including a two week ‘transitional housing payment’. We are also introducing a two-week run on for eligible claimants of Income Support, Jobseeker’s Allowance and Employment and Support Allowance from July 2020.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Overall the Government are spending £55 billion a year on benefits to support disabled people and people with health conditions. That’s a record high and up £10 billion in real terms since 2010.</p>
