To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what recent assessment he has made of the availability of mental health services for people sleeping rough.
Answer (Jackie Doyle-Price)
The Department has not made a recent assessment of the availability of mental health services for people sleeping rough. The Department is working closely with a range of other Government departments, seeking to understand the extent of the problem and to develop a new strategy to implement the Government’s commitment to halve the number of rough sleepers by 2022 and eliminating rough sleepers by 2027. Effective access to health, social care and wider support services will be one important contributing factor in achieving this aim.
