Quarter of winter shelter residents go back out

 
November 4th 2012
 

Homeless Link, an umbrella organisation for homeless charities, has released research showing that one in four people who sought help from a seasonal shelter returned to the street with the warmer weather.

The research, carried out with 101 local authorities across the UK, also stated that almost half of those using the shelters were actually rough sleepers.

In total, 2,308 people sought shelter of some sort, with the majority of provision coming from hostels or B&Bs.

Over a third of temporary residents had no previous contact with services, and more than 730 people either moved into accommodation or into another service.

 

•  Our listing of winter shelters in your area is in The List under ‘Seasonal Shelter’.
