No one in the UK should have to face the injustice and indignity of homelessness. As lockdown eases, many people who have been temporarily housed in hotels will need to leave them.
We stand at a crossroads: we can build on the incredible progress that has been made, by helping everyone move on into a secure and permanent home; or we risk seeing thousands of people returning to the streets or to uncertain, unstable and sometimes dangerous living situations.
Crisis services across the country are undergoing significant change and expansion in order to respond effectively to the thousands of people who need our help now more than ever. We are funding organisations across the UK to do the same, and are working with devolved and national government to ensure that the end of lockdown marks the beginning of the end of homelessness.
