The government is committed to tackling homelessness and rough sleeping. We have provided £1.2bn of funding to address homelessness. In August, we announced a £100m Rough Sleeping Strategy to begin progress to meet the commitment to halve rough sleeping by 2022, and eliminate it by 2027.

All long-term decisions on public spending will be taken at the Spending Review this year, when the Chancellor will set out his approach for the future.
