What happens when you have nowhere safe to stay?

The MPs on the communities and local government committee, noting increases in all forms of homelessness in recent years, have challenged the government to do more to contribute to the ending of homelessness. Funding initiatives are welcome, but are not enough to bring about the long term, systematic change needed. Instead, we have to get to a point where councils routinely provide emergency interim accommodation to people who come to them without anywhere safe to stay; anything less forces people to sleep on the streets and is unacceptable.
