    Bristol Council has agreed to continue funding homelessness prevention, after it was expected to be cut to save money.

    The mayor had proposed to cut this in order to use the money for other council services, but it has been voted for the service to continue.

    The homelessness prevention pot of £200,000 is used for rent deposits and rent-in-advance loans, in order to keep people from becoming homeless.

    The council had a consultation on plans to use this funding elsewhere, but a final vote kept it with the service for an extra year. It will be reviewed again after 2013/14, along with all areas of spending.

    Guy Poultney, cabinet member for homes, planning and regeneration, said:

    This is vital work and I'm very pleased we've been able to protect this particular funding stream.

    Helping some of the most vulnerable people in the city find decent homes is crucial to helping them re-build their lives.
