630 Yorkshire Children Risk Waking Up Homeless This Christmas
A charity says more children in Britain face waking up homeless this Christmas than any other year in nearly a decade.
The figure stands at 120,000 children nationally.
Shelter also says the number of families living in emergency accommodation, like B and Bs and hostels, has also risen, by nearly a fifth in a year.
630 children in Yorkshire and the Humber face spending this Christmas homeless and in temporary accommodation.
Tracey Nathan, Shelter Sheffield hub manager, said: "News that over 600 children face spending Christmas homeless in Yorkshire and the Humber will bring heartache to thousands of people across the region. But the sad fact is, fifty years since Shelter was founded, too many families still need our help.
"Almost daily at our Sheffield hub our advisers speak to parents desperate to find somewhere safe and affordable they can raise their family. Imagine losing your home and being forced to live in temporary accommodation, often for months on end, never knowing when you might have a place to call home again - this is the kind of emotional and mental turmoil no parent wants their child to endure.
"That's why we urgently need the public's support to help us to continue to be there for the hundreds of families in Yorkshire and the Humber who'll need us this Christmas. Join us and together we will not rest until every homeless child has a place to call home."
The charity are launching a Christmas appeal.
