In a year where the UK government has cut its rough sleeping fund by some £80 million finding the money for projects and services to help the homeless is an increasingly pressing problem. Council budget cuts are in the news almost every week.
However, preventing homelessness and finding housing for rough-sleepers can have a ripple-effect that saves money for the health service, the police and prison system and child-protection and social services. Therefore tight budgets can, when you target the right people and make the right economic case, lead to more funding for homelessness programmes, not less.
Dr Amanda Stafford from Royal Perth Hospital in Australia presents the pragmatic case for funding homelessness services – and explains why you might not be putting pressure on the right people at the right time.
