This Government is committed to ending rough sleeping by the end of the Parliament. That is why last year’s Spending Round announced total resource funding of £422m to reduce rough sleeping and homelessness in 2020/21. This followed on from discussions with the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government and represents a £54m increase in funding – a real terms increase of 13%.
