Answer for No second night out (2)

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The critical issue is that we ensure that those people who find themselves on the street for the first time do not spend a second night out, and that no-one lives on or returns to the capital's streets. To continue my success in achieving these aims, I am supporting a range of innovative initiatives. These include the soon-to-be-expanded No Second Night Out project, the newly opened No-one Living on the Streets project and outreach services across twenty London boroughs, as well as the new £5 million rough sleeping Social Impact Bond.
