In response, Matt Harrison, Director of Business and Social Enterprise at Homeless Link, said:

“We welcome the Government’s announcement of a further £2 billion to build social housing in the future. This, along with the commitment to working with housing associations over the long-term to build more affordable homes, is a positive step. To end homelessness for good, we need to tackle the current housing crisis and increase the availability of genuinely affordable housing so that everyone has a place to call home."
