Stand up for the million renters facing homelessness
A million households in Britain could be at risk of homelessness by 2020, unless a freeze on housing benefit is lifted.
A current freeze on housing benefit is pushing hundreds of thousands of private renters dangerously close to breaking point at a time when homelessness is rising.
The government has shown a commitment to fighting homelessness, so must back up its words with actions. It must reverse cuts to Local Housing Allowance (LHA), a type of housing benefit, as a matter of urgency, to make sure that private tenants who need help paying rent aren't forced into homelessness.
Sign our petition to call on Chancellor Philip Hammond to restore LHA and stop more renters becoming homeless.
