135,000 children homeless this Christmas

New research from the housing charity Shelter has found there will be 135,000 homeless children this Christmas, including 810 in Yorkshire and the Humber.

This is shameful.

Rising homelessness is a direct result of decisions made by the Tories over the last ten years in Government: slashing investment in new low-cost homes, refusing to help private renters and making huge cuts to housing benefit and homelessness services.

The Conservatives' manifesto makes clear they have no plan to tackle the crisis of rising homelessness.

A Labour Government will end rough sleeping within five years and fix the root causes of rising homelessness with the biggest council and social housing programme since the 1960s, stronger rights for renters and extra funding for homelessness services.
