London boroughs fail families

 
May 5th 2015
 

Thousands of homeless people are being moved around London without councils informing each other, reports Inside Housing.

Due to a shortage of housing stock, some 8,000 families have been moved “out of area” in the past two years without councils properly communicating about where the families are placed, according to an FOI request made by the magazine.

This has left people without the health, education and other support services that they need, particularly when placed far from their communities and contacts.

The investigation found that in October 2014, 2,333 notifications were sent regarding homeless families being moved “out of area”. However, government data shows that nearly 11,900 families were moved out of area during this period.
