£38m fund to provide more homes for vulnerable Londoners

The government has announced almost £38m of funding to make thousands of extra homes available for vulnerable Londoners at risk of becoming homeless.

The fund is part of the government’s £1.2bn overall investment to tackle homelessness.

The additional homes will help provide a long-term, stable solution for vulnerable families struggling to find secure accommodation.

So far, 11 London boroughs have joined the scheme to provide safe accommodation for families.

James Brokenshire, secretary of state for housing, communities and local government (pictured above), said that everyone deserved a safe and secure home.

“I’ve seen for myself how hard each of the London boroughs works to provide those that are homeless with the support they need and a roof over their heads.

“This radical new way of working and unprecedented collaboration between the boroughs and government will make a real difference – providing more accommodation for the vulnerable and helping them to get back on their feet and away from homelessness for good.”
