Single homelessness

Non-statutory homeless people need help to get back on their feet, even when local authority budgets are tight.

We fear that funding cuts will lead to increases in the number of rough sleepers, and will leave non-statutory homeless individuals with no support and no means to meet their basic needs.

For the last two years the Public Affairs Unit have taken representatives from the Homeless Services Unit to party conference to meet ministers and shadow ministers.

As well as holding Fringe Events at Party Conferences, we have also taken 29 MPs on visits to Lifehouses (our centres for homeless people) in their constituency.   A few examples of these are...

  • Kris Hopkins MP visited Edward Alsop Court - one of our Lifehouses. Read more
  • Deputy Scottish Labour Leader Anas Sarwar MP praised William Hunter House in Glasgow. Read more
  • Housing Minister, Grant Shapps MP spoke at The Salvation Army fringe event at the Conservative Party Conference on Homelessness in the age of austerity. Watch now
  • Rushenara Ali MP's visit to Hopetown Lifehouse. Watch now
