Half Way review – dispatch from the frontline of the homelessness purgatory
Daisy-May Hudson’s documentary about her family’s journey into the depersonalising trauma of the rehousing system has the quiet desperation of I, Daniel BlakeIn a crushingly personal dispatch from a family pushed off the edge of London’s housing boom, Daisy-May Hudson hits record on her camcorder as she, her mother Beverly and 13-year-old sister Bronte are evicted from their Epping home and forced into the purgatory of the hostels system. The younger sibling, afraid to stay there alone at night, dubs the pebbledashed lodging they are allocated “Hansel and Gretel’s thing in the woods”. They face an all-too-familiar austerity-Britain obstacle course: freefalling living standards, bureaucratic vindictiveness and stonewalling – plus paying a pretty penny (£500 a week) for the privilege.

The displaced tenants paying the true cost of an inhumane housing policy
Councils must commit to a more humane, thoughtful and cost-effective social housing policy than moving people away from jobs and homesMoving social housing tenants from one council borough to another is nothing new: in 2007, residents reported being offered housing elsewhere. But a three-pronged policy shift has intensified and increased the number and distance of placements: rising rents, the benefits cap, and new powers under the Localism Act 2011. The latter allows councils to offer out-of-borough placements and discharge their duty to house residents if they refuse such an offer.New research released exclusively to the Guardian, by Kate Hardy at the University of Leeds and Tom Gillespie at the University of Sheffield, offers a snapshot of the lives of people in the east London borough of Newham offered placements outside their areas.

Rough sleeping on rise in Birmingham after cuts to homelessness services
Charities, outreach workers and the council all view ‘frightening’ levels of rough sleeping as a result of local authority cutsThe body of a 30-year-old homeless man was found at the back of a dark loading bay beside the Birmingham New Street railway station car park on Tuesday night, the coldest of winter so far. There are no flowers at the place he died, but the flattened, damp cardboard boxes where he slept are still there, along with a couple of woollen hats and a pair of green socks.The man has not been named and none of the homeless people who sleep on the surrounding streets are quite sure who died. Police say he was a drug user. Charity workers fear his death is the inevitable consequence of radical cuts to homelessness services, which have led to a new rough-sleeping crisis in the city.We had got it to manageable levels and made huge progress until 2009. Then the cuts started Related: What you can do to help rough sleepers this winter Continue reading...
