star this property answer text <p>Government-backed schemes have supported over half a million households into home ownership since 2010. The Help to Buy: Equity Loan has helped nearly 184,000 households purchase a new-build home from its launch in 2013 until June 2018 and 81 per cent of sales were to first time buyers. The recent Evaluation of Help to Buy: Equity Loan from 2015 to 2017 found that 63 percent of first-time buyers were under 35 years old. Our reforms to Stamp Duty, introduced at Budget 2017, have already benefited 180,500 people who pay the tax.</p><p>But we understand there is more to do. The revised the National Planning Policy Framework places an expectation on local authorities that on major sites, 10 per cent of affordable housing provision should be dedicated to home ownership products, such as shared ownership, rent to buy or starter homes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>MHCLG has not carried out such an assessment. Housing-with-care is able to react flexibly to fluctuating, or increasing, care and support needs. There is evidence to suggest that living in a housing-with-care setting can reduce the overall amount of care older people might need, whilst also having the potential to reduce loneliness levels.</p><p>In the UK only 0.7 per cent of over-65s live in a housing-with-care setting.

star this property answer text <p>We are committed to supporting coastal communities to unlock barriers to their development and growth, and to strengthen their appeal as places to live, work and visit.</p><p>On 23 March, we announced a £36 million funding boost for coastal communities supporting 70 projects around the English coastline. <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/james-brokenshire-announces-over-36-million-for-the-great-british-coast" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/news/james-brokenshire-announces-over-36-million-for-the-great-british-coast</a>.</p><p>This included a £663,000 Coastal Communities Fund Round 5 grant towards a £925,000 project (“Unlocking the Essex Coast Path”) to promote the Essex coast as a high quality visitor destination with a diverse tourism offer. Resorts along the Essex coast, including Clacton, will benefit from the project.</p><p>The Government will have invested over £200 million in the Great British Coast by 2020 through dedicated programmes like the Coastal Communities Fund and the Coastal Revival Fund, to help generate jobs and boost businesses and bring iconic or at-risk heritage and community assets back into economic use. This investment is having tangible results in our coastal towns. The Coastal Communities Fund alone has invested over £218 million in 354 projects across the UK since 2012. The Fund is helping to create or safeguard over 18,000 UK jobs and generate £363 million in new visitor spend.</p><p>Since 2015 we have provided £1.46 million to help establish 146 Coastal Community Teams around the English coastline. These Teams ensure the local community works together with the local authority, businesses, and local stakeholders to agree priorities for economic development in their area. Jaywick Sands Coastal Community Team was established in 2015 and is working to create a “new coastal village”, seeking to improve housing and social conditions for local residents, and stimulate a change in market conditions.</p>

star this property answer text <p>All schools are required to actively promote our shared values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs. Schools are also required to promote equality and respect for others, with particular regard to the protected characteristics. Promotion of these values is part of Ofsted’s inspection framework and the department has published guidance to schools on promoting these important values as part of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.</p><p>In 2016, the department also launched the Educate Against Hate website which provides resources for teachers and school leaders to support their promotion of these values. This includes the department’s Respectful Schools Communities toolkit; a self-review and signposting tool to support schools to develop a whole-school approach which promotes respect and discipline.</p><p>Additionally, subject to the passage of regulations through parliament, schools will be required to teach relationships education to all primary pupils and relationships and sex education to all secondary pupils from September 2020. The focus is on building positive, respectful relationships, including online, and understanding the impact of harmful stereotypes and bullying.</p><p>The department also supports a number of specific initiatives in schools to combat bullying. The department is providing over £2.8 million of funding, between September 2016 and March 2020, to 4 anti-bullying organisations to support schools to tackle bullying. This includes projects targeting bullying of particular groups, such as those who are victims of hate-related bullying, along with a project to report bullying online. These projects contribute towards the government’s Hate Crime Action plan.</p><p>Finally, as part of our commitments in the government’s Integrated Communities Action Plan, the department has funded an expanded national school linking programme. This seeks to encourage meaningful social mixing between different types of schools and foster understanding of those with different backgrounds, faiths and beliefs. Last year, the Linking Network worked with over 400 schools leading to 17,635 pupils taking part in activities supporting integration.</p>
