We did it! Together with our supporters, the National Landlords Association and the Residential Landlords Association, we convinced the Chancellor to help homeless people rent.

The Autumn 2017 Budget included £20 million for Help To Rent projects to support homeless people, vulnerable tenants and their landlords.

There was also £28 million to pilot a new approach solving rough sleeping known as Housing First and confirmation of their manifesto commitment to launch a Homelessness Reduction Taskforce.

With homelessness on the rise and the cold winter months closing in, the government must now turn these words into action - and we'll need your help to make sure they do. Have you signed up for Everybody In? 

In the meantime, please do share the good news on Facebook and Twitter.
