star this property answer text <p>This Government is clear that one person without a home is one too many and we are committed to preventing and reducing homelessness and rough sleeping. Time spent in temporary accommodation means people are getting help and it ensures no family is without a roof over their head.</p><p>We have put in place an ambitious programme of work to support households out of Temporary Accommodation. 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.</p><p>We have also put in place targeted funding streams focused on reducing the number of households in Temporary Accommodation as part of our £1.2 billion spending programme. For example, earlier this year, we announced £19.5 million for 54 projects through the Private Rented Sector Access Fund that will enable thousands of households to be supported away from Temporary Accommodation and into long term Private Rented accommodation.</p><p>We have also committed £37.8 million of funding to launch Capital Letters, a collaboration between London boroughs which will enable them to become more efficient in securing accommodation within London, reduce the cost to local authorities of procuring accommodation and enable them to place households closer to home.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Local authority spending on home to school transport for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) generally increases year on year. Section 251 outturn data shows for example, total SEND transport spend (on a gross basis) was £645 million in 2014-15 and £769 million in 2017-18: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-local-authority-school-finance-data" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-local-authority-school-finance-data</a>. This increase is likely to be the result of a number of factors and cannot be attributed solely to the demand for education, health and care plans.</p><p>We have invested a total of £365 million through the special provision capital fund from 2018-19 to 2020-21, which will help local authorities to create new places and improve facilities for pupils with SEND.</p><p> </p> more like this
