In the last decade Britain made considerable progress in tackling rough sleeping through policies and support systems. There still remain long-term rough sleepers on the streets despite of the efforts, and in London, where the most rough sleepers reside, new actions have recently been taken towards the goal of ending rough sleeping. This article analyses the recent change in approaches to rough sleeping in London, examining legislation and policies as well as the actual support conditions for rough sleepers. In conclusion, the CHAIN database that is able to track rough sleepers has led to the London's current focus on the most excluded, and a cross-sectoral authority has been launched in order to deal with the targeted group. London has reached to the point of providing the most excluded minors with individualised supports rather than systematic approach after the 10-year progress.
