Homelessness Debate in Parliament

There was a debate on homelessness in Parliament on 18 December 2013. The following is an extract from the contribution to the debate by Simon Danczuk, the MP for Rochdale.

'The Petrus homelessness project in Rochdale has achieved an incredible amount on an exceptionally tight budget, even though it has faced severe budget cuts. If it were not for Petrus, dozens of people in Rochdale would have died prematurely as a result of homelessness. If politicians are serious about addressing homelessness, they should watch a video called "RoofLess" that Petrus produced with Community Arts North West which shows homeless people telling everyone about their fragile, damaged lives and how they ended up becoming homeless. I went to the launch of that video a week ago, and it is well worth watching.'
