The causes of rough sleeping are complex, and it is driven by a range of factors both individual and structural, which could include changes to households' income.

The Government remains committed to ending rough sleeping within this parliament. We are investing £2 billion over 3 years to tackle homelessness and rough sleeping, including up to £500m in funding to local authorities through the Rough Sleeping Initiative, from 2022-25.
