Charity says 20,000 young people could become homeless
A charity says up to twenty thousand young people in the North East could be made homeless, under government proposals to cut housing benefit.
The Prime Minister has said that rather than claiming the money, people under twenty five should move back in with their parents, but the homeless charity
says that won't be an option for many of them. Crisis

Middlesbrough charity has been awarded thousands of pounds
The contract was given to Hope North East by national charity Crisis for their new Hope 4 A Home project.
The charity said the money will help single non-priority homeless people find new homes and independence.
A Middlesbrough Council spokesperson said such homeless people placed "a high demand" on social housing teams, and the money will help the situation.
Crisis has allocated £3m in total, provided by the Department of Communities and Local Government.
The project is one of over 70 new local projects across England, adding to an existing 49 that have already helped more than 1,000 homeless people into a home.
The project would help the homeless build a better future for themselves.
