Dame Louise Casey has been appointed to undertake a review into rough sleeping that will provide the Government with advice on additional action required to end rough sleeping within this Parliament. Dame Louise’s recommendations will inform the Government’s approach to meeting this manifesto commitment and will support the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to develop their Comprehensive Spending Review bid in summer 2020.

Dame Louise will report to the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government. She will consider as part of the urgent review the links between 24-hour street activity and rough sleeping and how best we can support this group. It will also look into those struggling with drug and alcohol misuse, and those with physical and mental health issues.
