Fund title: Emergency funding to help rough sleepers to self-isolate
Focus of fund/fund aims:
Local authorities will be reimbursed for the cost of providing accommodation and services to rough sleepers, and those at risk of rough sleeping, who are suffering from or at risk of coronavirus
The Government has announced £3.2 million of emergency funding to help rough sleepers to self-isolate to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The funding will be available to all local authorities in England and will reimburse them for the cost of providing accommodation and services to those sleeping on the streets to help them to self-isolate.
This initial emergency response funding will ensure rapid support is offered to people who are unable to self-isolate, such as those staying in night shelters or assessment hubs, as well as people who are currently sleeping rough.
Local authorities will be able to claim costs incurred from government. Each local authority will be notified as to the provisional maximum amount it is entitled to claim back, which is calculated based on the number of rough sleepers reported in the Autumn 2019 snapshot.
