At Autumn Budget 2017, it was announced that an additional £125 million would be available for Targeted Affordability Funding in 2018/19 and 2019/20. In 2018/19 this enables us to increase 213 Local Housing Allowance rates by 3 per cent in those areas where rates have diverged the most from local rents. More Targeted Affordability Funding will be available in 2019/20 and arrangements for its distribution will be finalised at the end of this year.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, from 2011 the Government has provided around £1 billion in Discretionary Housing Payments to local authorities to protect the most vulnerable claimants and support households affected by different welfare reforms including the freeze to Local Housing Allowance rates.</p> more like this

For the private sector, the Secretary of State has written to private building owners that do not have any remediation plans in place, urging them to follow the lead from private companies already doing the right thing, by getting on with the task of remediating and not passing on costs to leaseholders.</p><p> </p> more like this

The regulations further require that when considering making a distant placement, the responsible authority consults with the host authority, and shares information including the child’s care plan.</p><p>It should also be noted that local authorities do place looked-after children in boarding schools from time to time, where it is considered in the child’s best interests. Boarding schools, by their nature, can be outside the responsible local authority’s geographic area.</p> more like this

It has taken time to develop the business case and it will not be complete until 2015.

Liaison and diversion services enable people entering the criminal justice system with mental health-related conditions and learning disabilities to get the right support and the best possible care as soon as possible. For offenders whose needs are not identified by a liaison and diversion service in police custody or the courts, these will continue to be identified through court procedures or at reception in prison.</p> more like this

If a local authority does not incur this level of this expenditure, a proportion of the receipt is transferred to Homes England (HE) or the Greater London authority (GLA), who use these recycled Right to Buy receipts to deliver starts and acquisitions.</p><p>As part of the one-for-one Right-to-Buy replacement commitment Local Authorities have delivered 16,012 replacements and recycled receipts used by HE and the GLA has delivered 1,899 replacements.</p>
