iPhone : We’re providing councils in England with an additional £1 billion, protecting vital services this winter.

The latest in our comprehensive package of support.

iPhone : #PlanningForTheFuture means bringing the planning system into the digital age.

We’re working with the emerging #PropTech sector to spur innovation and entrepreneurship. twitter.com/ChrisPincher/s…

Twitter Web App : This misunderstands the support we set out today. We’re working with the sector – backed by over £700m funding this year – to protect vulnerable people this winter. Our guidance sets out principles to help shelters reopen as safely as possible if required. mhclgmedia.blog.gov.uk/2020/10/13/res… twitter.com/crisis_uk/stat…

iPhone : We don’t underestimate the challenges to come and keep this comprehensive plan under constant review.

But there should be no doubt that we will do everything we can to protect vulnerable people.

We’re more determined than ever to #endroughsleeping
5/5

iPhone : To ensure there are shelters available as a last resort only we’ve worked with Public Health England to prepare guidance.

And we’re providing £2m to charities and faith groups to help them make their shelters as safe as is possible.

iPhone : Our total financial commitment to tackling rough-sleeping this year alone is now over half a billion pounds.

And today we’ve announced a further £10m to help councils prepare more Covid secure accommodation for winter.
3/5

iPhone : We’ve asked local councils to prepare detailed plans to support rough-sleepers to the end of the year. And we’ve funded this with £100m of new money.

We’ve also invited proposals to buy, rent or refurbish “move on” accommodation to create 6,000 units across England.
2/5

iPhone : #EveryoneIn helped more than 90% of those sleeping rough on our streets at the start of the pandemic into safe housing.

29,000 people are housed today as a result.

It’s one of the most successful initiatives of its kind in the world.

Now we’ve prepared a plan for winter.

Twitter Web App : From Macmillan to Thatcher, Conservatives have a proud history of delivering the homes that people need.

Last year we built a record number of homes, and we owe it to the next generation to keep going. As Boris Johnson says, we'll help turn generation rent into generation buy. twitter.com/Conservatives/…

iPhone : We're working with Shelter to help those sleeping rough at Manchester and Birmingham stations.

I'm calling on the rail industry to join me in signing a charter with ambitions to end #homelessness and support those needing help.
