1.1.            Introduction and Statement of the Problem

London borough has a responsibility to ensure the problems of homelessness are dealt with. It is important for London Borough to secure permanent accommodation for all the homeless people and offer advice and assistance. Although reforms to the Localism Act has meant that local authorities enjoy more flexibility, the increase in a shortage of available accommodation has ensured that the London borough faces a severe challenge in meeting its statutory duty. The problem of homelessness among adults is exasperated by the fact that the council does not offer accommodation to single adults or couples who do not have dependent children. The problem of homelessness impacts communities in some ways, and it is important for the local authority and community developers to ensure there is low homelessness in their respective communities as possible.  Whatever the cause of homelessness for an individual its consequences can be brutal. It damages the ability of people through loss of skills, inability to think about employment. It also deteriorates the health of individuals and damages their resilience, self-confidence, and self-esteem (Clapham, 2003). Therefore, it is important to know the causes and consequences of homeless in London Borough, and the strategies which can help to reduce the rates of homelessness to reduce the amount of suffering among the London Borough communities (Berg, Lune, and Lune, 2004).
