AMBER RUDD TELLS HASTINGS HOMELESS WILL HAVE TO DIE ‘TILL 2027’
Over Christmas three homeless people died in Home secretary Amber Rudd’s parliamentary seat, Hastings corner confirmed today.
When Amber Rudd was asked by local paper The Hastings observer to comment on the deaths on the streets of her constituency. The government minister replied:”It is a tragedy when someone dies on the streets and this Government is taking action to make life on the streets a thing of the past.
For the UK as a whole, the Government is committed to halving rough sleeping by 2022 and eliminating it altogether by 2027.”
So the growing homeless population of Hastings and Rye must wait another nine years before they can be sure of a roof over their heads.
How the government hope to even achieve this goal is beyond me.
130,000 children woke up homeless this Christmas as child homelessness reaches 10-year high.
The number of rough sleepers is up by 134% since the Tories came to power.
The number of homeless in the UK is only set to dramatically increase.
Analysis by Heriot-Watt University for Crisis has found that the number of homeless people in Britain will reach 575,000 in 2041, up from 236,000 in 2016. The number of people sleeping rough will more than quadruple from 9,100 in 2016 to 40,100 over the same period, the research found.
