Following intensive lobbying from campaigners like you, Conservative MP Bob Blackman introduced the Homelessness Reduction Bill which had its first reading, in the House of Commons, in June.

On World Homelessness and Mental Health Day, we delivered our letter to 10 Downing Street - 15,012 of you signed it. Thank you.
