Under Labour, Leeds City Council ensures that we always have enough emergency accommodation for all rough sleepers.
This is something important to Labour in Leeds.
While some people may for whatever reason not accept the support offered, we will ensure we always provide and continue to offer that support.
Officers at Leeds Housing Options recorded 435 homelessness preventions by assisting people into private rented sector accommodation alone between April 2016 and March 2017, and are on course to exceed that this financial year.
Private rented accommodation is just one of the options for people facing homelessness.
It’s going to be extremely cold this weekend.
If you see someone sleeping out please let them know that they don’t need to.
Contact 0113 245 9445 during office hours or 07891 271939 at any other time.
They can then access emergency accommodation and the opportunity to secure long-term housing and support.
