Families with children living in bed and breakfast accommodation has leapt by 45%

The number of families with children living in bed and breakfast accommodation has leapt by 45% to 3,000 in a year, government statistics reveal. Of these, one third have been living in B&Bs past the legal 6-week limit.

Figures published by the Communities and Local Government Department (DCLG) this morning show that there were 68,560 households in temporary accommodation at the end of September – a jump of 13%.

The number of households ‘accepted’ as homeless by local authorities has also risen by 4% – with 14,670 accepted between 1 July and 30 September 2015.
