PRHA welcomes the Government’s new Rough Sleeping strategy with its focus on prevention, intervention and recovery initiatives. These aim to offer comprehensive support to ensure the specific needs of vulnerable rough sleepers are addressed. The funding for improved health, tenancy sustainment & “Somewhere safe to stay” services are all good news. The bigger challenge though is providing an adequate supply of genuinely affordable housing options for Rough Sleepers to move into when they are ready to do so.
