alan whitter started this petition to Government
Homeless hostels are paid for by local government, they then charge a service charge on top of this which the resident is expected to pay weekly , this is causing people who lead chaotic lifestyles to be evicted due to none payment of this , though I understand the importance of paying this in reality a resident with addictions will choose to feed that addiction first .

This is easily solved by taking this money direct from any benefits before the resident gets it , this is done in many cases with universal credit where it goes direct to the landlord ..

I'm starting this petition due to the rising number of evictions due to arrears , this is leading to an increase in people returning to the streets ..
