In the depths of winter, many homelessness charities have struggled with the ever-increasing numbers of rough sleepers and homeless people. Just this past Christmas, homeless charity Shelter reported that 280,000 people had no home on Christmas Day.
“As well as those facing serious ill-health or even death sleeping rough on our streets this winter, there are thousands of families trapped in grotty emergency B&Bs, with no space for children to sit and eat, let alone play. This is the grim truth our new government must confront and do something radical to change,” said Polly Neate, Shelter CEO.
Despite the winter crunch, digital leaders across homelessness charities are doing more with technology.
