Cornwall Council will be receiving a £567,620 share of funding announced today to support vulnerable people through housing.
The funding will provide interim accommodation and support as part of the government's commitment to end rough sleeping.
This is part of £91.5 million of government funding to ensure interim accommodation and support for the most vulnerable people, including by helping people into the private rented sector, secure interim accommodation such as supported housing, and assess the wider support these people need in order to rebuild their lives.
St Austell and Newquay Member of Parliament Steve Double commented:
“I am pleased to see the Government commit more money to help house and support vulnerable people in Cornwall, where our rough sleeping numbers have consistently been falling because of this commitment.”
“It is important that Cornwall Council uses this funding, when it has it, to appropriately house those who need assistance most, and I look forward to them working with all organisations within the wider community to ensure this happens in a way that benefits all.”
