Homelessness is not inevitable. It's a political choice made by the UK government

Sanctions lead to homelessness. The homeless or those sanctioned do not count as unemployed on the statistics.

Noted this bit in the link Given;

The government said tackling homelessness was a "complex issue" but it was determined to help the most vulnerable in society.
It said it was implementing the Homelessness Reduction Act which "means more people get the help they need earlier to prevent them from becoming homeless in the first place".
A spokesman added: "Our welfare reforms restore fairness to the system with a strong safety net in place to support the most vulnerable, including £24bn through the housing benefit.


I Say Bullshit; This Government don't give a damn,
Shame on everyone who voted for this Government. :angry:
