Stop Making People Homeless

Stop Making People Homeless

Repeal legislation cutting housing benefit to 18-21 year olds.

Why is this important?

The cut will leave young people in situations of abuse, or being thrown out of their family home, more vulnerable to sleeping rough.

Government cuts to social care, youth services, children’s services and advice centres mean that those who become homeless are less likely to get support to help them out of their situation.

The estimated number of rough sleepers in England has doubled since 2010.

This is a national issue being spearheaded from Bradford which is the youngest city in the country and will be the youngest in Europe by 2020.
