A bid for funding to help rough sleepers in Islington has been successful.
On September 17, Islington Council announced it had won £826,000 from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to support people sleeping on the streets.
It will help to pay for 93 units of accommodation for those with complex needs, access to emergency sites and support workers.
Additionally, the North London Housing Partnership - which includes Islington, Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and
Westminster councils - was awarded £530,000 to support its work with homelessness.
