Answer for Homelessness Fund

Answer for Homelessness Fund

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The fund provides capital funding to help both improve hostel services for homeless people and deliver accommodation for young adults facing homelessness who may not otherwise be able to maintain employment, education and training.  This in turn minimises the flow of new rough sleepers to the streets, and assists in rebuilding their own lives.
