This Government is committed to supporting our veterans who have given so much in service of our country (and we have published a refreshed Veterans Strategy Action Plan, on 19 January). We are also committed to ending rough sleeping, including for veterans. This is backed by over £2 billion over the next 3 years to tackle rough sleeping and homelessness

Funding for housing support services is devolved to local authorities through the Local Government Settlement. Local authorities are best placed to make decisions on what local services they provide, based on local priorities and circumstances. My Department does not collect annual statistics here specifically on veterans.

The refreshed Veterans Strategy Action Plan includes a reference to planned research on supported housing, including veterans.
