Today members of our team were privileged to spend time with both shadow chancellor John McDonnell and leadership candidate Owen Smith to discuss how the next Labour government will end homelessness.
We are grateful to them both for their time and for offering their support for our five pledges to end homelessness, which are:
1 A government-led national structure involving all of the major organisations, including statutory and community sector organisations, dedicated to ending homelessness.
2 Implement more efficient preventative measures and early intervention programmes to stop homelessness becoming entrenched and end the cycle.
3 Create a more effective registration system and information database of rough sleepers and hidden homeless to begin the process of rehousing.
4 Enshrine the right to a home for everyone and begin the process of rehousing all of the UK’s homeless population, including those with complex needs.
5 Launch a substantial and sustainable programme of public and social house building.
We look forward to working with both John and Owen over the coming years in order to end homelessness together.
