Government support to help reduce homelessness
Announcement on the Gov.UK website from Department for Communities and local government, The Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP and Marcus Jones MP headlines ‘Government to support new legislation to reduce homelessness’
The Homelessness Reduction Bill will significantly reform England’s homelessness legislation, ensuring that more people get the help they need to prevent them from becoming homelessness in the first place.
This builds on the government’s commitment in December 2015 to consider all options, including legislation, to prevent homelessness.
Communities Secretary Sajid Javid said: “No one should have to sleep rough on the streets. We want to build a country that works for everyone, not just the priveleged few. That’s why we are determined to do all we can to help those who lose their homes and provide them with the support they need to get their lives back on track.
“This government is therefore, very pleased to support Bob Blackman MP’s Private Members Bill, with its ambitious measures to help reduce homelessness”.
