LGA works with the government to help find housing for Ukrainian arrivals

The Local Government Association (LGA) has said urgent solutions are needed to help tackle rising cases of homelessness amongst Ukrainian arrivals. 

Recent government data revealed that more than 4,000 households have received homelessness assistance from their local authority. This marks an increase of more than 40% compared to the end of January this year. 

The LGA says it will work closely with the government to help support people who have shared their homes with Ukarian refugees. 

An initiative to push more volunteers to get involved will also be high on the official body’s priority list. 

Councillor James Jamieson, Chairman of the Local Government Association, says: 

“Councils have been at the sharp end of the rise in the number of people presenting as homeless and need urgent solutions to pressing housing needs in the short and the long term across all the schemes that welcome new arrivals to the UK.”

Here at Imperium Resourcing, we are strong believers in local authority and government collaboration and this is just one of many examples where strengthening this relationship will help make a significant impact when it comes to improving lives.
