Over £3 million of funding to support vulnerable rough sleepers will be shared between 16 London boroughs, including Wandsworth Borough.
The government funding will help support vulnerable people off the streets and into safe accommodation, where they can rebuild their lives.
Boroughs will use the investment to fund schemes which help those sleeping rough into a new home, as well as specialist support to help them back on their feet.
The investment will also be used to set up team of ‘Navigators’ – specialist support workers who will work tirelessly as a single point of contact to help people off the streets and into recovery.
Boroughs could also use the funding to establish dedicated lettings agents for rough sleepers, which provide homes and advice for those sleeping on the streets, supporting them into affordable and settled accommodation.
