Tackling Homelessness


Homelessness is a devastating symbol of a failing society.

At the beginning of this pandemic, the Government stepped in to provide shelter for all homeless people, but the ambition of this support has been scaled back. Ultimately this proves that the failure to tackle homelessness is a policy choice by this Government and not an accident.

That’s why in Parliament yesterday I called on the Housing Secretary to provide us with a more frequent picture of homelessness and rough sleeping across the country so that we can continue to fight to ensure that everybody has a roof over their head.
