Newham Homelessness Action Group: 20 Nov 2018 #OurDay

Many thanks to all participants at @NewhamLondon Homelessness Action Group. We had residents with lived experience, DWP, Charities & officers working together to tackle the scourge of Homelessness. We have a way to go #OurDay

We had a presentation on Newham Homelessness Prevention & Advice Service - now 5100 families in Temporary Accommodation & over 28k on waiting list but only 604 empty homes became available last year. 50% increase in homeless application this year (due largely to the new Homeless  Reduction Act)
