Homelessness is rising across the uk. it is now a very desperate situation when desperate households are trying to find somewhere to live. Councils across the country are struggling to house people because of a decline in social housing, spiralling private rents, and welfare cuts. Councils also reported a growing reluctance among landlords to rent people on welfare, with many worried that formerly homeless tenants would struggle to pay rent and bills.
the homelesness monitor, indicates that the number of homeless families and individuals placed in temporary accommodation jumped to 78,000 last year, an 8% rise on the year and a massive 60% rise since 2012. The number of homeless households placed in B&Bs – which are often cramped, unsuitable, and sometimes even dangerous – rose particularly quickly, with a 10% rise on the year. If trends continue as they are the research reveals that 100,000 households will be living in B&Bs, hostels and other temporary accommodation.
Our aim is to help support individuals to maintain their temporary accommodation as well as secure new tenancies with reputable landlords. Many young adults leaving prisons are unable to do so on their own, particularly with budgetting issues caused by issues with universal credit. We hope to assist whereever possible
