An obligation has been created by law so that local authorities are required to house people who fall within a definition (for more information visit http://www.shelter.org.uk/). While this has done much to improve the outlook for some homeless people, particularly families, others remain out in the cold.
We would like to see an extended definition with a right to accommodation for all homeless men and women to ensure that no one if left behind and all those with a need are offered a place to sleep.
