Homeless services disappear

 
April 5th 2014
 
Do you ever feel like there are fewer places around for you get support from? You’d be right. A report has revealed that a total of 36 London homelessness providers have either closed or merged with another charity over the last five years.

The London Housing Foundation’s ’atlas’ of services for homeless people between 2008 and 2013 found that 12 agencies had closed in the past five years and 24 merged, with only eight new organisations entering the sector.

The report also showed that floating support is provided by fewer organisations with the top three – Single Homeless Project, One Housing and Look Ahead – now delivering 80 per cent of all floating support, compared to 50 per cent in 2008.
