Homelessness: ‘Perfect storm' for 5.3m renters as gas prices jump, furlough ends and Universal Credi

With energy prices rising, the furlough scheme due to end on Thursday and Universal Credit being cut a week later, a “perfect storm for homelessness” is looming for struggling renters.

More than a quarter of renters already struggle to heat their homes in winter. A survey carried out by YouGov on behalf of housing charity Shelter found 26 per cent of renters could not keep their homes warm in winter, equivalent to 5.3m people.
