5,250 people homeless in Wandsworth alone

Postby Community Editor » Mon Dec 03, 2018 6:33 am

Shelter, the charity that campaigns against homelessness and bad housing has launched an urgent appeal after a new report reveals homelessness crisis deepens in Britain.

The analysis from Shelter reveals that 320,000 people are recorded as homeless, as numbers rise again. 

In the last year, the overall number increased by 13,000 people. This means one in every 200 people in Britain are homeless and sleeping on the streets or stuck in temporary accommodation, including hostels and B&Bs.

Wandsworth is ranked 18th worst in the country with a total of 5,250 people homeless and one in 62 without a place to call home.

Shelter has launched an urgent appeal calling on the public to support its frontline advisers as they work to help the growing number of people trying to find or keep their home.
