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 we have recently published our Rough Sleeping Strategy, which will help people who sleep rough now and puts in place the structures to end rough sleeping once and for all. It sets out the first steps towards achieving our aim to halve rough sleeping by 2022 and end it altogether by 2027, backed by £100 million of funding over the next two years.</p><p>We have set up a Rough Sleeping and Homelessness Reduction Taskforce which brings together ministers from key departments in preventing and reducing rough sleeping and homelessness, including the Department for Health and Social Care. The Taskforce will drive forward the implementation and delivery of our Rough Sleeping Strategy to achieve our commitment. Alongside the Taskforce, we have an expert Rough Sleeping Advisory Panel formed of key representatives from the homelessness sector and local government who fed into the Strategy and will continue to meet.</p><p>We are also committed to working with all local authorities as we move towards a country where no one should ever sleep rough through our Rough Sleeping Initiative, in which we are providing 1,750 additional bed spaces for rough sleepers and an additional 531 dedicated homelessness workers. We are also working with local areas through measures set out in our Rough Sleeping Strategy such as the Rapid Rehousing Pathway, strengthening local homelessness strategies and supporting Health and Wellbeing Boards to recognise and respond to the health needs of people who sleep rough.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government fully recognises the important role small and medium sized house builders (SME) play in delivering the much needed housing in this country, including contributing to social and affordable housing. Our priorities are to boost housing supply and to build more affordable homes, supporting the different needs of a wide range of people and built by a range developers, including SMEs. This is done through over £9 billion Affordable Homes Programme to March 2022 which will deliver 250,000 new affordable homes of a wide range of tenures, including social rent. Since 2010, we have delivered over 407,000 new affordable homes, including over 293,000 affordable homes for rent.</p><p>SMEs also contribute towards the production of affordable housing, including social housing through section 106 agreements with local authorities. The national policy on developer contributions from small sites seeks to strike a balance between increasing self-build and small-scale housing development, while recognising the role of section 106 in helping to provide affordable housing. We continue to provide support to SMEs to build more homes through the £2.5 billion Home Building Fund’s short-term fund, a £1 billion SME guarantees scheme announced at Budget 2018 and changes to the small sites policy in the National Planning Policy Framework.</p>

That is why we are making Relationships Education compulsory for all primary school pupils and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) compulsory for all secondary school pupils. From 2020, Health Education will also be compulsory for all pupils in state-funded schools.</p><p> </p><p>We have recently published the updated draft guidance, which contains information on what schools should cover when teaching these subjects. The guidance, attached, is available here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/781150/Draft_guidance_Relationships_Education__Relationships_and_Sex_Education__RSE__and_Health_Education2.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/781150/Draft_guidance_Relationships_Education__Relationships_and_Sex_Education__RSE__and_Health_Education2.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The guidance includes an equal focus on teaching children and young people appropriate behaviour with other people and on being safe online. For example, pupils should be taught about making sure that they treat others respectfully when they are online as well as recognising potential risks to themselves. In RSE, pupils are taught that there are a range of strategies for identifying and managing sexual pressure, including understanding and resisting peer pressure, and not pressurising others. We have made clear that, at all stages, it will be important to balance teaching children about making sensible decisions to stay safe whilst being clear that abuse is never the fault of a child who is abused and that victim blaming is always wrong.</p><p><strong><br> </strong></p>
