The Government committed to expanding Housing First in its manifesto and we will use the findings of our evaluation of the Housing First pilots, together with our experiences from the three pilots, to inform next steps.

The Government has also allocated £32 million for Housing First and housing led projects through the Rough Sleeping Initiative 2022-25, and both the Single Homelessness Accommodation Programme and Rough Sleeping Accommodation Programme include providing Housing First accommodation for adults with a history of sleeping rough who require high levels of support.

Future funding on homelessness and rough sleeping will be announced in the usual way.
