Nine years of Tory failure on housing means that the number of people sleeping on the streets has doubled since 2010. Figures also show a rise of 80% of homeless children. These numbers are sickening. The Government are simply unwilling to help the most vulnerable and helpless in our society.
A Labour Government will end rough sleeping within 5 years by reserving homes for those who have history of homelessness. They will also build at least 100,000 affordable homes to rent and buy, including the biggest council house building programme in over 30 years.
