The Passage has been working with Crisis and many other external partners on the Homelessness Reduction Bill, a private members’ bill that is going to be debated in Parliament on Friday 28th October.
This is a potentially very important piece of legislation that, if passed, will put extra duties on local authorities to both prevent homelessness (not just for those in priority need), and will also include a relief duty to provide extra help in finding accommodation for those who present as homeless.
If fewer than 100 MPs attend the debate on Friday 28th October, the Bill is more likely to be dismissed without even going to a vote – so we at The Passage would like to urge all of our supporters to write to their local MPs and persuade them to attend the debate. You can do this very simply here: https://community.crisis.org.uk/no-one-turned-away/home-fb#takeaction
We would be very grateful to our supporters for spreading the word; this is a very important Bill that could really make a big difference for our clients.
