Barnardo’s warns that care leavers may end up sleeping rough unless they can get an alternative to B&B accommodation.
Barnardo’s CEO Javed Khan says:
It is shameful that so many vulnerable young people have nowhere decent to stay upon leaving the care system.
B&B is far from ideal. But if its usage is to be banned, emergency back-up needs to be available.
Care leavers rely on local authorities for support. Children’s services and housing departments need to find suitable lodgings for those in dire need of a roof over their head.
