Emergency hostels are failing people sleeping rough, says a
report this week.
Housing campaign groups CHAR and Crisis surveyed 136 homeless
people using 27 projects in England and Wales.
They found many hostels did not have the resources to cope with
people with behavioural, drug or alcohol problems.
A CHAR spokesperson said: ‘There is now a class of marginalised
homeless people who are increasingly excluded from emergency
hostels and other mainstream services.’
