Sadiq announces £50m to help London’s homeless

Our Labour Mayor of London has set out plans to help homeless people with a new £350m fund. This will include support for former rough sleepers and victims of domestic abuse.

The funding will be available to housing providers to offer move-on accommodation to homeless people who are ready to move into a home of their own after spending time supported in hostels and refuges.

Sadiq is investing a further £9m annually in services for rough sleepers and recently launched a new taskforce, “No Nights Sleeping Rough”, which will bring together Government, local councils like Lambeth and key agencies to focus on preventing rough sleeping and helping those on the streets.
