Prince William and bid to tackle homelessness
William to tour the UK to launch a project aimed at ending homelessness and ensuring the issue is “rare, brief and unrepeated”.
The Prince of Wales has set his sights on making rough sleeping, sofa surfing and other forms of temporary accommodation a thing of the past. He wants to emulate Finland, where the problem is virtually eradicated, with the initiative called Homewards.
The five-year project will initially focus on six locations, to be announced over Monday and Tuesday, where local businesses, organisations and individuals will be encouraged to join forces and develop “bespoke” action plans to tackle homelessness with up to £500,000 in funding.
