Greater Manchester has started its transition to sustainably accommodate and support homeless people who have been housed in hotels and other temporary accommodation during the covid crisis.
The temporary accommodation was offered as an immediate humanitarian response to the health pandemic to help protect the most vulnerable in society. It was made possible due to the availability of commercial accommodation and the Government’s ‘Everyone In’ policy. Almost 2,000 placements have been made into hotels spread across the city-region since mid-March.
The public, private, faith and voluntary sectors have worked in partnership to co-ordinate an unprecedented drive to support some of Greater Manchester’s homeless into accommodation ideally suited to maintaining social distancing during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.
