The ‘No Nights Sleeping Rough’ taskforce brings together partners key to tackling rough sleeping in London, in order to
- identify interventions that will contribute to tackling rough sleeping in the capital, building on and supporting existing work to do so
- where possible, implement the interventions identified, or
- where necessary, lobby for the interventions identified, and
- monitor the effectiveness of interventions in tackling rough sleeping.
Interventions supported and/or implemented by the taskforce will, broadly, focus on preventing people from rough sleeping and on preventing those who have ended up on the streets from becoming (more) entrenched there.
The work of the Taskforce forms part of Homes for Londoners, which brings together all of the Mayor's work to tackle the housing crisis. The terms of reference and minutes from meetings can be found below.
