The number of children housed in temporary accomodation has reached a 12-year high, official figures show.

The number of homeless children housed in temporary accomodation has reached a 12-year high, with growing numbers of families unable to afford a home to call their own, official figures reveal.

The latest homelessness statistics, published today by the UK Government, reveal 123,630 children were living in temporary accommodation in England between April and June 2018 – a 70% increase on 2010 and the highest number for 12 years.

According to the statistics, a total of 82,310 families were housed in temporary accommodation between April and June, with 61,480 of these households having children.

Labour said the latest figures are a “national shame”, and blamed the Tories for fueling the homelessness crisis through benefit cuts and a lack of Government investment in genuine affordable homes.
