Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assistance is available to destitute people who are not allowed to access benefits. [HL347]

Homelessness charities are often able to assist people who are destitute and not eligible for benefits. In the case of destitute eastern Europeans, we have provided funding to support local authorities in helping destitute eastern Europeans return to their home countries.
