Greater Manchester to receive £3.8m to tackle homelessness 13/10/2017 Labelled as Finance

Greater Manchester will receive almost £3.8 million to develop a new city region-wide approach to preventing homelessness and reducing rough sleeping.


The funding will be used to develop new services and resources across all 10 boroughs of the region. This will include making hub-based services open 24 hours a day across Greater Manchester, to provide high quality support for people when they need it the most, and the adoption of a social letting agency approach across Greater Manchester to help those struggling to find secure accommodation.


These measures will enable the 10 boroughs of Great Manchester to work better together with clear systems in place to prevent homelessness and rough sleeping from happening in the first place.


The funding for the Greater Manchester homeless package will form part of the Greater Manchester Reform Investment Fund.


In visiting Manchester, the Prime Minister Theresa May also announced that progress was being made on a housing deal with Greater Manchester to accelerate the delivery of new homes.


The Housing White Paper committed to agreeing bespoke housing deals with authorities in high demand areas, which have a genuine ambition to build.

Read the DCLG announcement on the funding for the Greater Manchester homeless package.


ARCH and the NFA (National Federation of Almos), together with ARCH members Sheffield City Council, Stoke on Trent City Council and NFA member Newark & Sherwood Homes have been in discussions with DCLG (Department of Communities and Local Government) to push the case for Bespoke Housing Deals and we were expecting an announcement on the future of Bespoke Housing Deals in the Autumn Budget or in the run up to it. The Prime Minister's reference to a housing deal for Greater Manchester suggests that we can expect an announcement on bespoke housing deals soon.
