We have worked closely with sector partners, drawing on their data, expertise and knowledge and taken account of the findings of an independent audit of provision of domestic abuse services across England, led by Ipsos MORI.</p><p>Following the review, we intend to consult on potential measures for sustainable delivery of support for victims and their children in accommodation-based services for domestic abuse across England shortly.</p>

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 last summer we published the cross-government Rough Sleeping Strategy. This set 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 current spending review period. In 2018/19, £30 million in Rough Sleeping Initiative (RSI) funding provided 1,750 additional bed spaces and 500 rough sleeping support staff. Government support is expanding as we move into 2019/20, with £46 million for the RSI including £12 million to new areas. We expect this to deliver an additional 750 staff and 2,600 bed spaces this year.</p><p>We are currently making preparations across Government to prepare for the forthcoming Spending Review, which includes specific work on Youth Homelessness. In addition, the Homelessness Reduction Act, the most ambitious reform to homelessness legislation in decades, has pledged a duty to refer on public services to refer those who are, or at risk of, homelessness to local authorities. The Homelessness Advice and Support Team supports implementation of the Homelessness Reduction Act and includes specific youth advisers to work closely with local authorities on issues around Youth Homelessness.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Ensuring tenants in the private rented sector are protected from poor housing conditions is vital, so we have commissioned a review of the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) to assess how well it works in practice and make sure that it is fit for purpose. The first phase of the review is now complete, setting out recommendations which will inform the appropriate direction of the second phase - from a full root-and-branch revision of the HHSRS down to a simple refresh of the standard and its accompanying guidance.</p><p>In addition, we have brought in strong enforcement powers for local authorities to tackle those non-compliant landlord. These include the introduction of civil penalties of up to £30,000 as an alternative to prosecution; banning orders for rogue landlords and agents, in tandem with a database of rogue landlords and property agents to prevent serious offenders from letting properties; and extending rent repayment orders which require a landlord to repay a specified amount of rent to a local authority or a tenant, to cover, for example, illegal eviction or failure to comply with a statutory notice. This year we have awarded over £2.3 million in grant funding to local authorities to boost their enforcement work, fostering innovative approaches and sharing best practice to tackle the minority of landlords who deliberately flout the law.</p>
