A co-ordinated approach is key to tackling homelessness

I have spoken to the Wrexham Leader about the latest figures on rough sleeping in Wales.


I am very aware of the issue of rough sleeping in Wrexham. I asked for and helped secure additional funding from the Welsh Government last year to increase homeless provision and the council are providing this.

I raise the issue with senior council officers and am meeting with local homeless people myself on a regular basis. This is a national problem which I see in Westminster every day. It has grown significantly recently and the UK Government has to take ultimate responsibility.

I think one of the important things we need to get right is to co-ordinate the different approaches being taken by people in Wrexham – whether that is by the council, the health board, the police, local charities – or even private individuals.
