Our response to the government’s updated strategy on rough sleeping

05 September 2022

Kate Henderson, Chief Executive of the National Housing Federation, said:

“We welcome the government’s focus on long-term solutions to rough sleeping, with specific funding to deliver this

“It is a positive that this new strategy builds on existing partnerships between housing associations, health bodies, local authorities and the charity sector which are vital in providing tailored support to those who need it.

“A focus on both housing and on prevention is key to ending rough sleeping. Housing associations use person-centred approaches to support people with experience of rough sleeping to stay in their homes. We look forward to continuing to work with the government and other partners to deliver this strategy.”
