St Mungo’s submission to the Autumn budget 2017

In this submission we set out our views on how the government should address funding for homeless services as part of their planning for the Autumn Budget. We call on the government to delay reforming the funding system for supported housing until 2022, and invest in specialist homeless mental health services. To ensure that mental health services are working effectively, the government should create a detailed plan to improve mental health for people who are homeless, including additional investment in specialist mental health services.
