To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, with reference to his Department's press release entitled New government initiative to reduce rough sleeping, published on 30 March 2018, what progress the Government has made on its work with the National Housing Federation to look at providing additional, coordinated move-on accommodation for rough sleepers across the country.

During the process of formulating the Rough Sleeping Strategy, we engaged with the National Housing Federation and many other specialist organisations regarding move-on accommodation. Following this engagement and the release of the Strategy, we are implementing the Rapid Rehousing Pathway, of which the Supported Lettings Fund is a key element. This fund will help increase access to move-on accommodation by supporting those who require tenancy sustainment support, as well as build trust amongst landlords.
