Bangla sanglap report: Jenrick now moves on to what the government is doing to help rough sleepers in England during the pandemic.

He says 90% of rough sleepers have been helped off the streets as part of the “everyone in” programme.

To build on this, he says the government is pledging to build 6,000 new homes to provide permanent shelter for the homeless, including 3,300 over the next year, at a cost of £160m.

The new homes, he adds, will be a “springboard to better things” for the homeless and a “symbol of hope and our belief that nothing is pre-determined”.
