Our London based friends will be interested in this link, which can be found on the Mayor’s website dated 20th December 2016. The information sets out plans for a £50m fund to help homeless people, including former rough sleepers and victims of domestic abuse, by delivering properties specifically earmarked for people needing to move on from hostels and refuges. The funding is available to housing providers as part of the Mayor’s £3.15bn Affordable Homes Programme, which was agreed with the Government in November’s Autumn Statement. Whilst more localised groups may not be able to tap into the fund they may want to speak to their London Assembly representative about how the funding in being utilised in their area and possibly explore how they could like into the services being provided. This is the link to the article and this is the link to more information about the £50m.
