The news that extra money has been allocated to help single people in East Yorkshire at risk of becoming homeless has been hailed as “fantastic”.

As much as £250,000 of Government money will be shared between four councils including Hull and East Riding. The cash is for people without a partner who risk losing their home or have already ended up without one.

Symon Fraser, a councillor at the East Riding authority, said the money would help prevent people sleeping on the streets and make sure single homeless people could get help across council areas.

The funds will be paid out from the Single Homeless Fund in two chunks, with projects having to show their first year’s efforts are working before getting the money for a second year.

It is intended to boost schemes already working in the area, such as outreach projects that will be expanded. It will also help the councils boost the work being done by volunteers in the community to help homeless people get help, perhaps with finding somewhere to stay.
