Cornish Children Forced To Live In A B&B
10:03am 7th August 2014
Some Cornish children are being forced to live in bed and breakfasts.
Pirate FM has learnt that 23 families with kids were put in temporary accommodation over the first three months of 2014.
Over the last year, two ended up spending more than six weeks there because there was nowhere else for them to go.
Henry Gregg from the National Housing Federation tells us the same thing is happening across the UK.
He said: "It is a tragedy for some of the children living in temporary accommodation, because often they are living in a B&B and the whole family is in one room, they have no space to do their homework, no space to live normal lives or to play, and that is having a really big impact on their education, health and wellbeing."
Roger Harding is from housing charity Shelter, he said: "They can be moving around different schools, they can have no space to do their homework, it is just a very disrupted home life, despite parents often working really hard to make it as settled as possible, but that is just really hard when you haven't got a genuine place to call home."10:03am 7th August 2014
