Where she is profoundly wrong, however, is in her view that there are enough places in hostels for rough sleepers. Thames Reach's outreach team works on the streets every night in central London with people sleeping rough and on most nights we find every central London hostel bed-space taken up.
One of the greatest challenges facing Louise Casey and the Rough Sleepers' Unit will be to find a way of making more bed-spaces available in hostels for long-term rough sleepers, many of whom will come in off the streets, given the chance.
