What we are doing
Homeless Link and our members support and deliver many solutions to rough sleeping. We engage regularly with MPs and Ministers to make the case for better approaches to tackling rough sleeping and for more resources. It was proved during the COVID pandemic that it is possible to find safe places for everyone to sleep. Rick Henderson, CEO of Homeless Link is a member of the Government's Rough Sleeping Advisory Panel and the Kerslake Commission.

Comprehensive Spending Review submission 2021
'Everyone In' showed how effective universal, unconditional support is in tackling homelessness, uniting organisations and driving innovation. But the temporary housing solutions offered to many were, by definition, temporary. In October 2021 the government had the opportunity to build on this success by providing adequate, long term funding for the sector - as part of the government's Comprehensive Spending Review.
