Tackling Homelessness

by craigwhittall on 17 September, 2016

Homelessness is on the increase in MK and across the country.

Homelessness is on the increase in MK and across the country.

 
Sadly, homelessness is on the rise across the UK, including here in Milton Keynes. People become homeless for many reasons, but Government policies are exasperating the situation.
 
The Liberal Democrats in MK have made tackling homelessness and the shortage of affordable housing, including houses for rent, one of our top priorities. It was in our manifesto and is now part of Milton Keynes Council’s ‘Council Plan’.
 
We are delighted to welcome and support the recent move by the Council’s Cabinet to bring forward a historic paper to address the issue of so called ‘non-statutory homeless’, and to work in partnership with the various charities and other agencies that work with the homeless in MK.
