Welsh Government to provide £10 million for emergency support

We are pleased to see Welsh Government has committed to providing £10 million for emergency support to rough sleepers in Wales during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

See our full statement below:

Stuart Ropke, Chief Executive of Community Housing Cymru said:

“Nobody should be without warm and safe shelter. On a daily basis, housing associations work tirelessly to ensure people have access to the services and support they need, and in a crisis, it's crucial this is made as quick and simple as possible.

“We welcome Welsh Government’s plans to ensure councils have the funding and power to support people, whatever their circumstance, during this uncertain and highly difficult time."
