The Public Accounts Committee has announced in a report that the ‘notable pandemic response success’ of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s (MHCLG) ‘Everyone In’ initiative during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has exposed gaps in how the MHCLG approaches the problem of rough sleeping. The initiative, which took place during spring 2020, saw people sleeping rough moved rapidly into houses in an attempt to prevent coronavirus spreading among them. However, the number of people housed (37,430) is nearly nine times the MHCLG's last official estimate of people sleeping rough on streets in England. The Committee notes that the MHCLG ‘still does not have a plan for achieving or maintaining the government’s 2019 election commitment to end rough sleeping by May 2024’. As a result, it sets out recommendations for the MHCLG.
