£40 Million Homelessness Prevention Programme Announced

A new £40 million programme to provide an innovative approach to tackling homelessness, with prevention at its heart, has been announced. The Prime Minister has announced a fresh government approach to tackling homelessness by focusing on the underlying issues which can lead to somebody losing their home. This includes a new £10 million rough sleeping prevention fund to help individuals who might be struggling to get by from ending up on the street. It will also provide rapid and targeted interventions for new rough sleepers, such as helping them to access employment and education opportunities. Read more on the GovUK website.
