£38 million to boost accommodation for London’s homeless


Several London boroughs have joined forces to boost the supply of temporary accommodation, backed by almost £38 million of funding from the government’s £1.2 billion overall investment in tackling homelessness.

By working together, the Capital Letters programme will help remove competition that can drive up costs and provide stable solutions for vulnerable families struggling to find secure accommodation.

Cllr Darren Rodwell, London Councils’ executive member for housing and planning, said: “Capital Letters is a crucial opportunity to do things differently – and we are extremely pleased to have the government’s support for this innovative work.”
