In 2015, a total of 8,096 people were sleeping rough in London. 

In April this year, a report written by former Olympics minister Tessa Jowell revealed that more than 1,000 young people in Harrow had no permanent home.

Harrow on the Hill Cllr Glen Hearnden, portfolio holder for housing said: “If you are worried about losing your home, please come forward. 

"We desperately want to help you make the best out of your situation and our officers are here to advise and support you. 

“Homelessness is a serious issue that is being made worse by the national housing crisis and cuts to welfare. 

"We’re building more homes, but our housing stock is extremely low and waiting lists are long. It’s now more important than ever that our residents are helped every step of the way.” 

The first event will take place from 2.30pm - 6.30pm in the Members’ Lounge in Harrow civic centre.
