This past Christmas over 10,000 volunteers came together to give around 4,000 people across Britain food, warmth, vital services and a chance to take a first step out of homelessness.
When we all come together we can achieve great things. In our 50th year, we’re pulling everyone and everything together to make a plan that shows how we can end homelessness for good.
But we need Everybody In to make it happen.
Today the government releases its statutory homelessness statistics showing that there are 78,930 households living in temporary accommodation across England, a 4% rise since last year and a massive 49% rise in the last five years.
New recommendations to ensure the commitment to eradicate rough sleeping is met have been set out by the Scottish Government’s Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group.
Crisis has described the 15 per cent rise in rough sleeping in England as a ‘catastrophe’, following continual rises since 2010, when evidence shows how the problem can be fixed.
