The number of people sleeping rough on the streets of Greater Manchester has fallen for the second year in a row.
Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) found 195 people on the region's streets in September - down from the 241 recorded in November 2018.

Manchester and Salford saw numbers decline, but five of the borough's ten council areas recorded an increase.

Mayor Andy Burnham, who pledged to end rough sleeping by 2020, said "much more needs to be done".

[size=1rem]Bolton, Salford, Tameside and Wigan all saw a decrease in numbers.[/font][/size]

Greater Manchester Housing First (GMHF) is a three-year pilot project that aims to provide safe, secure homes for more than 400 people who are homeless or at the risk of being homeless across the region.
GMHF is endorsed by the Greater Manchester Housing Partnership (GMHP) and is a consortium of eight partners, led by Great Places Housing Group.

Other partners working together with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) to deliver the project are: Riverside; Regenda Homes; Jigsaw Homes Group; Stockport Homes Group; Greater Manchester Mental Health; The Bond Board and One Manchester.
The consortium brings significant experience, expertise and commitment and is cross sectorial, bringing together housing, health, people with lived experience and the community and voluntary sector in one joined up collaborative approach.
