star this property answer text <p>Her Majesty’s Prisons and Probation Service (HMPPS), formerly known as the National Offender Management Service, does not calculate separately the costs by type of sentence. The information recorded on the HMPPS central accounting system does not allow the identification of such costs. However, an average cost per prisoner, costs per prison place and overall prison unit costs for each private and public sector prison in England and Wales are routinely published by HMPPS. This information is produced on an annual basis and is published after the end of each financial year.</p><p>Information on prison expenditure can be accessed in the Prison and Probation Performance Statistics pages for each financial year on the <a href="http://www.gov.uk" target="_blank">www.gov.uk</a> website. Prison unit costs can be found within the Excel document Costs per prison place and cost per prisoner by individual prison establishment in the ‘Cost by Establishment’ tab.</p><p>A specific figure on the amount of subsidy provided for a hostel bed space is not available. The 2016 Supported Accommodation Review, published by DWP and MHCLG, showed that the estimated average weekly Housing Benefit award for working-age claimants living in supported housing in England (which would include those living in hostels) was £180 per week, attached (see Table B.11, page 119). <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/572454/rr927-supported-accommodation-review.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/572454/rr927-supported-accommodation-review.pdf</a></p><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 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. The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period.</p>

The Government has now committed over £1.2 billion to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping over the spending review period.</p><p>This Government, and my Department, has policy responsibility for setting the national framework for homelessness and rough sleeping policy in England alone. It should be noted therefore that the interventions detailed in this response refer to England alone.</p><p>In its first year, our Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) provided over 1,750 new bed spaces and 500 staff. This year we have expanded the RSI with investment of £46 million for 246 areas – providing funding for an estimated 2,600 bed spaces and 750 staff.</p><p>We know that many rough sleepers have substance misuse needs, and also that rough sleepers can struggle to access the support they need to tackle substance dependency. As set out in the Rough Sleeping Strategy we are conducting a rapid audit of health service provision to rough sleepers, including mental health and substance misuse treatment; £2 million has been allocated to test community-based models of access to health services for rough sleepers, including substance misuse services, and new training is being made available for front-line workers to help them support rough sleepers under the influence of new psychoactive substances such as spice.</p><p>We are also working across Government to ensure that rough sleepers who require treatment for substance misuse have access to the appropriate services. This includes working with the Home Office to ensure rough sleepers are considered in the forthcoming Alcohol Strategy, and continuing to support the forthcoming independent review of drugs policy, led by Dame Carol Black.</p>

Time spent in temporary accommodation means people are getting help and it ensures no child or family is without a roof over their head.</p><p>As well as allocating over £1.2 billion to tackle all forms of homelessness over the spending review period, the government has also taken forward a number of important actions to specifically prevent and reduce homelessness.</p><p>The Homelessness Reduction Act, which came into force in April 2018, bolsters the support offer for families and individuals by ensuring that there are more opportunities for local authorities to put in place bespoke interventions to either prevent homelessness from happening in the first place, or relieve them from a homelessness crisis where it does occur. Local authorities have a duty to house eligible households with children.</p><p>We also replaced the Department for Work and Pension's (DWP) Temporary Accommodation Management Fee with a Flexible Homelessness Support Grant which local authorities can use more strategically to prevent homelessness and help households find a settled home. This amounts to £617 million over three years from 2017/18.</p><p>Our new Homelessness Advice and Support Team, drawn from local authorities and the homelessness sector, is providing support to authorities to deliver the Homelessness Reduction Act and effective homelessness services.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In England, specific guidance is not provided on the location of schools. The Government places great importance on ensuring that a sufficient choice of school places is available to meet the needs of existing and new communities. It expects local authorities to work collaboratively with school promoters to find suitable locations, while considering statutory duties around home to school transport and sustainability as well as other relevant factors. It is not always possible for children to be able to attend a school within walking distances, particularly in more rural areas, in which case the local authority would be under a duty to make travel arrangements where they considered it necessary to secure a child’s attendance at school.</p> more like this
