In our response Shelter argued that the objective of the targets should be to:
- reduce the number of households that have to live in bed and breakfast
- focus effort and attract resources, at a local and national level, to tackling the problem
- A simple numerical reduction target would be the best way to achieve this.
Shelter's response also addressed short, medium, and long-term solutions to reducing the use of bed and breakfast accommodation.
