  1. There are lots of reasons for people becoming homeless and the roomtax has just added to it, solving the problem will take money, homeless people want a roof over there head a safe place to live a place that gives them an address so can start getting JSA and start rebuilding there life. to do this Councils/Organisations need to buy properies and employ staff ( old hotels student accom ) those sort of places with 24/7 staff to keep residents safe and secure.. thats what is needed but thats not what will happen what will happen is lots of talk lots of we have enought hostels ( we dont ) and another winter when nothink gets done… solve homeless you have to spend money ,, but theres no money to spend so no change

    • Hi Paul thanks for your comments I’ve forwarded them onto Jo Forbes Strategy Manager at the council
