Homeless children


The Children’s Commissioner for England has published a report on the numbers of children growing up in homeless families. Analysis of data to create national estimates of the numbers of children living in temporary accommodation for extended periods suggests that there could be more than 210,000 homeless children in England including more than 120,000 children who are officially homeless and living in temporary accommodation and over 90,000 children in sofa surfing families.
