Shelter: Newham shows terrifying reality of our housing crisis

Shelter press release

Shelter’s chief executive Campbell Robb said: “This is the terrifying reality of our housing crisis today – hundreds of families potentially forced to move half way across the country, uprooted from schools, support networks and employment opportunities.

“Most worryingly, this is only the thin end of the wedge, as further reductions in the housing safety net start to bite over the coming months. The dangerous cocktail of cuts to housing benefit and spiralling rents is making finding a decent home increasingly unaffordable for families across the country. Those unable or unwilling to move away from their local area may be forced to overcrowd or accept a home in appalling conditions to make ends meet.

“Taking families away from their support networks at the time when they need them most is not going to help them back on their feet. The government must ensure that councils look out for homeless families’ best interests when making difficult decisions about where to house people.”
