MHCLG Rough Sleeping Covid-19 Taskforce

The MHCLG Rough Sleeping Covid-19 Taskforce worked rapidly and successfully with local authorities and other partners to bring thousands of vulnerable rough sleepers and others at risk into emergency accommodation at the height of the pandemic. The team swiftly refocused priorities and sustained morale through extremely challenging circumstances to bring 'Everyone In' through collaboration with local authorities, voluntary sector partners, and hotels. Within two weeks, over 90% of rough sleepers had been offered accommodation, and as well as saving hundreds of lives, this has helped to turn around the lives of many more.
