Rise in number sleeping on streets extremely worrying - Ní Chuilín
Sinn Féin housing spokesperson Carál Ní Chuilín MLA has described an increase in the number of people sleeping on the streets of Belfast as extremely worrying.
Carál Ní Chuilín said:
“The latest survey found sixteen people sleeping on the streets of Belfast the early hours of last Tuesday, compared to five last year.
"This sharp increase is extremely worrying.
"One person rough sleeping is one too many, particularly in this winter weather.
"No one should find themselves without somewhere to call home. The right to shelter is a fundamental human right and its timely that this survey has been released on international World Human Rights Day."
