Homelessness Rises Along With House Prices In London And South-East

Recommended Posts

http://www.theguardian.com/society/2013/dec/05/homelessness-rises-house-prices-london-south-east

Rising house prices in London and the south-east have seen sharp increases in homelessness, official figures have revealed.

Councils accepted 57,350 households as being homeless and placed them in temporary accommodation – including hotels and bed and breakfasts – in September 2013, a figure 8% higher than during the same period in 2012. More than two-thirds of these homeless households contained children or pregnant women.

The new data revealed that there was now the highest number of homeless families – 2,100 – living in emergency B&Bs for a decade.

With the numbers of people in "priority need" falling – essentially a measure of how many single people applied for help – the government could point to a fall in numbers "accepted as owed a main duty under homelessness legislation". This figure dropped 4% to 13,330 between 1 July and 30 September 2013.

Homeless families not hardworking families which is probably why they are homeless.... :ph34r:

I'm sure there's no correlation between the wider economy and this problem.
