Our petition is gaining momentum - thank you and please keep sharing

May 22, 2013 — Our petition to protect night shelters has been featured in Inside Housing and in Patrick Butler's Guardian Blog.

On Monday in the House of Commons, Julie Hilling MP asked Iain Duncan Smith what action the Department for Work and Pensions plans to take to make sure that night shelters are not forced to close. He replied that he is looking at the issue, along with Lord Freud.

It is vital that Lord Freud and the DWP act decisively to protect night shelters' right to access housing benefit. Please keep sharing our petition to make sure that they give this issue the attention it deserves.
