Why Support People Experiencing Homelessness?
You only have to walk the streets of Birmingham to see that homelessness is an issue that is all too common.
Figures show that in the six years between 2010 and 2016, the numbers of people experiencing homelessness in Birmingham has increased six-fold.
With Birmingham City Council’s most recent Rough Sleepers Count complete, initial estimates suggest that there are likely to be more than 300 people now sleeping rough in the city centre alone.
Tabor House, Birmingham’s only permanent night shelter, is a response to this problem. Working alongside individuals experiencing homelessness and services providing support, Tabor House aims to directly reduce the number of people living on the streets of Birmingham.
