The report finds 2017 has seen the highest numbers of homeless children in a decade due to the worsening housing crisis.

Tom Brake, MP for Carshalton & Wallington, commented:

“It is heart-breaking that so many children will be spending this Christmas without a home to call their own.

“This child homelessness crisis is a stain on the government’s record.

“Ministers urgently need to invest in the genuinely affordable homes our country desperately needs.

“We need tougher measures to tackle soaring rental costs and protect families from being evicted at short notice.”
