Our Ending Homelessness Action Plan sets out our medium to long term goal to reduce our dependency on temporary accommodation as part of our transformational shift to a rapid rehousing approach.

Currently, local authorities are using a variety of temporary accommodation including social and private rented sector accommodation, as well as hotels and B&Bs, to ensure no-one is forced to sleep rough. 

Prevention remains our focus and our priority is to reduce the flow of people needing temporary accommodation. We have provided an additional £6m to Local Authorities for a Discretionary Homelessness Prevention Fund. This is an ‘invest to save’ fund and can be used flexibly by local authorities to support people to remain in their own home or quickly relieve homelessness – including helping with rent arrears, rent guarantees, other household bills for example.

To support local authorities with move-on, we have established a £89m Transitional Accommodation Capital Programme (TACP) to increase good quality longer term accommodation to support people to move on from temporary accommodation more quickly.
