CAMPAIGN WIN: Together, 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. Sign up for Everybody In now.
When the Chancellor delivered his Budget yesterday we were waiting with baited breath to see if there would be anything on homelessness. The Huffington Post had trailed that there might be a small amount of cash but nothing big. But we were not disappointed. The Chancellor had listened to our supporters and the many politicians who called for more action to tackle homelessness, and in particular for investment in Help to Rent projects to support homeless people move into and sustain tenancies in the private rented sector.
Today the Government will announce details of its Budget, just a few days after the Prime Minister has promised to take “personal charge” of her mission to build more homes across the UK.
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.
