With the current Chancellor Rishi Sunak and his predecessor Sajid Javid, Dean has mentioned the urgency required in ending rough sleeping. It is why he is delighted with the news that the Government is increasing the budget given to Watford Borough Council to over £416,000 to defeat rough sleeping in Watford. This comes after Dean has both written and spoken about cuckooking- a tactic used by County Lines gangs to exploit people in vulnerable housing situations.
