New HCLG Committee coronavirus inquiry on homelessness, rough sleeping and the PRS

To feed into our sector response, please get in touch by 29 April.

The HCLG Select Committee has launched an inquiry into the impact of coronavirus on homelessness, rough sleeping and the private rented sector (PRS).

The inquiry asks:

  • How effective has the support provided by MHCLG and other government departments in addressing the impact of coronavirus on those in the PRS, rough sleepers, and the homeless?
  • What problems remain a current and immediate concern for these groups?
  • What might be the immediate post-lockdown impacts for these groups, and what action is needed to help with these?

You can find out more on the Committee’s website – if your organisation plans to submit an individual response, please note the deadline for submissions is Friday 1 May

The NHF will submit a sector response relating to homelessness and rough sleeping from a housing association perspective, based on feedback from our members about the biggest challenges faced by staff and the people using their services.

To find out more about our response or share your feedback, please get in touch by 29 April. In particular, we would like to receive case studies on the challenges you are currently facing.
