The Homelessness Epidemic Gets Worse – The Void

The UK’s homelessness epidemic is growing worse as statistics show there are more people sleeping on the streets in our city centres than at any point since national records began in 1998, according to The Void.

Rough sleeping has leapt by over 50% across England since the current Government weren’t elected going from 1,768 people in 2010 to an unprecedented 2,744 in 2014.  Despite Boris’ claim he would end rough sleeping in the capital by 2012, the number of street homeless people in London has almost doubled from 415 to 742 people between 2010 and 2014.

    It is scandalous, especially in this very harsh weather. There are some very good initiatives in the US including giving the homeless houses! It is cost effective according to a project in Utah and 7 months later most of them are still managing to still be successfully housed. As one of the project managers says, once you have people housed you can then tackle all the underlying issues.
    Tackling candidates about this and getting to local council meetings and asking pertinent questions is a good way forward.
    Thanks for the info – the first stage in change!

      I’ve been sent an article about the Utah project and I hope to get something on the blog about it in the very near future.
