Housing charity Shelter today publishes a report on how homelessness is forcing families apart.
In The Guardian (Society, p6), Shelter director Chris Holmes marks the 30th anniversary of the organisation.
He points out that each day around 480 families will be accepted by councils as homeless, and 200 homes repossessed.
Mr Holmes details the three main factors which contributed to the cutting of local authority house building.
He argues why government polices have contributed to the homelessness crisis and concludes that the future looks bleak for homeless and badly housed people.
