Eddie Hughes – 2021 Comments on Rough Sleeping

The comments made by Eddie Hughes, the Minister for Rough Sleeping, on 15 May 2021.

Across the country, there are staff and volunteers working tirelessly to make a real difference to the lives of rough sleepers.

From providing bed spaces and night shelters, to funding dedicated support staff and medical treatment, today’s funding will mean that crucial work to help people off the streets can continue.

This is part of an unprecedented £750 million of government investment this year to help us reach our goal of ending rough sleeping by the end of this Parliament.
