UK Homeless Crisis: 150 homeless families in Oldham

‘Shocking’ figures show that nearly 150 families in crisis are stuck living in temporary accommodation in Oldham.

The town hall’s housing boss told councillors there there are more than double the number of ‘homeless households’ turning to the council for help than last year.

Coun Hannah Roberts told the full council meeting: “The figures are shocking and show a marked increase in families in crisis in Oldham.”

She was responding to a question from St Mary’s ward Councillor Nyla Ibrahim, who asked how many families are living in temporary accommodation waiting for a new home, compared to 2018.

“What action is needed to solve this crisis?,” she asked.

The meeting was told that in quarter two of last year – April 1 to June 30 – there were 67 households in temporary accommodation.

In the same period this year, there were 148 families in temporary accommodation, with 146 still not placed into a permanent home.
