BBC Breakfast – Child homelessness and Welfare Cuts

December 1, 2016 • By

Dr Charlotte O’Brien – of the EU Rights Project – was live, in studio, on BBC Breakfast on Monday, the 2nd of November 2015, on the subject of child homelessness and the impact of welfare cuts.

Her key messages were that household income, being driven down, is not keeping pace with rates of rent, and that the increasing numbers of homeless families suggest that children’s rights are not being adequately protected.
