Shelter estimates in its recent study that 128,000 children will be homeless in emergency accommodation this Christmas. This is an increase of 20,000 from last year and 52% higher than 5 years ago. Perhaps the most shocking comparison is that this figure is higher than in 2007 during the financial crisis.
The Right to Buy scheme was one of the flagship policies of Margaret Thatcher's government, and one of its most controversial legacies. Introduced in 1980, it gave former council tenants the right to buy their council houses, often at large discounts. The goal was to create a 'property-owning democracy' and supporters credit the scheme with having given 77,500 working class families a foot on the property ladder, breaking down class barriers and creating less dependency on the state.
Last week, on Thursday, 14th December a memorial service was held at St Paul’s Cathedral to mark 6 months since the tragedy at Grenfell Tower, to remember those that lost their homes, their loved ones and even their lives.The service was very moving and was an example of London at its best. It was attended by people who had lived in or around the tower, people that had lost loved ones, members of the wider community, people of all faiths and none, politicians, pop stars and Royalty.
The purpose of the government’s flagship policy of Universal Credit is to combine a range of working-age benefits into a single payment. The theory was that it would simplify the benefits system by merging means tested benefits, including housing benefit, into a single payment. One significant feature is that the payment of rent is directly to the claimant rather than direct to the landlord, as housing benefit was in many cases. However, the rollout of Universal Credit has been more problematic than anticipated. Recent stories have highlighted that Universal Credit is pushing tenants deeper into rent arrears and increasing food bank referrals.
