A CHARITY for homeless people working towards end the problem across the UK has won the backing of the leaders Wales, Scotland and the UK.

First minister Carwyn Jones, as well as his Scottish counterpart Nicola Sturgeon and Prime Minister Theresa May have pledged to work Crisis as it builds a plan to end homelessness.

Mr Jones said: “Homelessness is wholly unacceptable in the 21st century.

"To have nowhere safe to call home and to be forced to sleep on the street is a lonely, frightening ordeal, which no one should ever go through.

"The Welsh Government is determined to end rough sleeping and all forms of homelessness.”

The charity will launch consultations in all three nations and a large scale programme of research.
