Speaking to ITV News the Chief Executive of the charity Shelter, Campbell Robb, said homelessness was now affecting families across the country and every part of society.
We've seen a rise in homelessness in the last six months mainly because of the economic situation as people struggle to keep jobs, wages are also struggling, costs are going up and people are just beginning to really struggle to keep a roof over their head.
What we need to do is to help these people find a home, to get that secure and set themselves up for the future.
