Authorities held to account

 
March 2nd 2015
 

Southwark Council has been ordered to stop breaking the law by turning away homeless people who apply for housing in the borough.

A High Court order made last month demands the London local authority “to cease with immediate effect” practices which led to homeless families being told to look for private accommodation before the council investigated if they were homeless.

These unlawful practices had meant that the borough kept its homelessness statistics artifically low.
