ROBERT Halfon welcomes additional Government investment to end rough sleeping
On Monday 13 August, the government announced a further £100 million investment in its Rough Sleeping Strategy.
This follows the £30 million investment in areas of the country experiencing high levels of rough sleeping – from which Harlow Council will directly benefit.
Harlow Council put in a bid for £260,500 to further its rough sleeping work over the next year. On 11 June, it was announced that Harlow was successful and would receive this funding.
