A new church housing charity has demanded urgent action from the government to tackle the root cause of homelessness by building more affordable housing. Housing Justice, formed by the merger of the Catholic Housing Aid Society and the Churches National Housing Coalition this week, claims that the UK needs to build at least 90,000 affordable homes a year and bring 750,000 empty homes back into use. A total of 278,440 households applied to local authorities for housing last year, with less than half accepted as homeless. Around 150,000 children are homeless, according to government figures.
