There were dozens of local authority/Home Office operations involving rough sleepers across London last year [Image: Souvid Datta for the Guardian].

Leading homelessness charities whose remit is to protect vulnerable rough sleepers have been passing information about some of them to the Home Office, leading to their removal from the UK.

A report from Corporate Watch, The Round Up, reveals concerns about homelessness charities’ links to immigration enforcement and comes at a time of increasing disquiet about the involvement of landlords, schools and the NHS with immigration enforcement.

Civil liberties campaigners have accused the government of having a toxic “border on every street” policy.
