More than 400 children homeless in Black Country

Housing charity Shelter said it is “unbearable” that tens of thousands of children across England had no permanent home when the pandemic took hold – after the national total hit a 14-year high.

Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government figures show 167 children from 64 households were housed in temporary accommodation in Sandwell at the end of March.

Elsewhere in the Black Country, there were 143 children from 56 households in Walsall; 96 children from 41 households; and 13 children from eight households in Dudley, at the end of March.
