Homelessness and the threat of becoming homeless is a much wider problem than government figures of 2,414 rough sleepers suggests. The affects are far reaching – with devastating consequences for individuals and families in temporary, unsuitable and unsustainable housing. Our new report launched on 9 July features eight sector experts, who draw attention to the severity of the problem. It challenges government to recognise the negative polices highlighted and to change them.
Chief Executive Ashley Horsey says
“Commonweal Housing is delighted to launch Rough Justice which highlights the many policy changes needed to combat homelessness. Homelessness is a very real problem that cannot be ignored; it results in distressing long-term consequences for individuals, communities and for the State.”
