Generation Homeless, a new report from Shelter, paints a shocking picture of the number of children who are homeless and in temporary accommodation. In the North West in Q1 2019, there were 4,150 children in temporary accommodation which is 1 in 394 children. This is a 385% increase in five years. Manchester has the 27th highest rate of homeless children in temporary accommodation in England, the only local authority in the top 30 outside of London, the South East and Luton.
