Since 1990 the department of the environment (now DETR) has committed more than£182m to the Rough Sleeper's Initiative. Introduced in London, it has expanded into more areas nationwide.

The RSI has been developed in partnership with charities and government agencies working with people sleeping rough and has funded a wide range of support for homeless people, from day and night shelters to temporary and permanent accommodation.
