Oxfordshire's city and district councils have won £790,000 of government funding to help tackle homelessness across the county.

The funding will be focused towards helping vulnerable single adults under the age of 35, and households at risk of homelessness.

This funding will be a major boost to our homelessness strategy that not only assists those who find themselves homeless but helps prevent it happening in the first place.

– Colin Dingwall, Cabinet Member for Housing and Shared Services at West Oxfordshire District Council
