Our Sponsors & Partners
London Housing Foundation
The LHF’s primary aim is to reduce street homelessness amongst single people. We do this by supporting the work of agencies that provide services to single homeless people or to those who are in imminent danger of homelessness.
We do not directly provide any services ourselves to homeless people but we run programmes and provide grants to help those that do.
Mayor of London
The Mayor of London is firmly committed to tackling rough sleeping in the capital. He works closely with boroughs, Government and charities. He has established the ‘No Nights Sleeping Rough’ taskforce, which brings together key partners to identify and pursue ways of preventing and addressing rough sleeping. He also invests £8.4 million a year in pan-London services for rough sleepers, intended to complement those commissioned by boroughs, in line with his Commissioning Framework. Framework’s overarching priorities are to work with boroughs and partners:
1. to minimise the flow of new rough sleepers on to the streets
2. to ensure that no-one new to the streets sleeps rough for a second night
3. to ensure that no-one lives on the streets of London
4. to ensure that no-one returns to the streets of London.
London borough housing directors
London Councils works closely with boroughs and other stakeholders on planning and housing issues in London, sharing information, promoting best practice, influencing policies and informing public debate. We convene a regular meeting of London borough housing directors concerning housing strategy and commissioning, housing partnerships and development, homelessness and housing needs.
