The lead Bishop for the Catholic Mental Health Project, the Right Reverend Richard Moth said: “I welcome the plan unveiled by the government to dedicate £100 million towards tackling homelessness. I am especially pleased to see that £30 million of this will be dedicated to funding mental health help and treatment for substance misuse, problems from which many of those living on the streets suffer. While this plan is significant, we hope that further steps will be taken to ensure the sense of urgency that this challenge demands.”
