Local Government Secretary James Brokenshire has announced that London boroughs are to join forces to provide thousands of extra properties for families on the edge of homelessness. The scheme is backed by almost £38m of funding from the Government's £1.2bn strategy to address rough sleeping. The Capital Letters initiative is designed to end competition between areas for the best accommodation, and is expected to help more than 35,000 households in Greater London out of homelessness over three years. So far 11 London boroughs have signed up - including Tower Hamlets, Croydon and Ealing - but it is hoped more will join in the future.
