The Government has committed to preventing and reducing homelessness for everyone, including armed forces veterans. That is why we have supported the Homelessness Reduction Bill, which will reform England’s homelessness legislation and ensure that more people get the help they need to prevent a homelessness crisis in the first place.

In addition, our £50 million Homelessness Prevention Programme has supported 84 projects across 205 district and unitary local authorities to deliver an end-to-end approach to prevention and rough sleeping.
