In response to the National Audit Office report out today Shelter’s Chief Executive Polly Neate said:

“This report reveals the tragedy of rising and persistent homelessness in England for tens of thousands of families and children.

“The NAO has found, what Shelter sees every day, that for many families our housing market is a daily nightmare of rising costs and falling benefits which is leading to nothing less than a national crisis.

“That’s why we are calling on the government to act now, in this year’s budget, to end the freeze on housing benefit and to commit to building decent homes at affordable rents. Without this action this is a crisis which will only get worse”
