The Rough Sleeping Initiative supports local authorities to develop their rough sleeping pathways, including providing emergency beds, off-the-street accommodation and wrap-around support. This multi-year commitment gives the funding certainty to local authorities to build on the successes they have achieved, to think longer-term about their responses to rough sleeping to focus on prevention and sustaining a life away from the streets.
