Why is ProxyAddress needed?

Homelessness is rising

The number of homeless people in the UK has increased dramatically since 2010.

Sleeping rough has increased by over 134%. A rough sleeper's life expectancy in the UK is just 47, 3 years lower than the life expectancy of Sierra Leone; 17 years lower than that of Syria.

The use of temporary accommodation has soared in the same period. There are now 70,000 households, including 120,000 children, living under constant risk of being moved on.

And there are those who cannot be counted: the 'hidden homeless'. These are people who move from sofa to sofa, floor to floor, in order to get off the street.

Properties are empty

The leading cause of homelessness is the end of a tenancy. But while thousands find themselves without a place to live, there are over 500,000 empty homes in the UK. 200,000 have of these have been empty for more than six months; 11,000 have been empty for over ten years.

With government-built social housing down by 85% since 2010 there are few options for those who find themselves unable to secure housing. Increasingly, the most vulnerable find themselves with no fixed abode.

No address means no ID

Being without a permanent address affects more than housing. Created to identify places, addresses are increasingly becoming the de-facto way to identify people.

This means that without an address, you are severed from the support you need to recover from entering homelessness. This includes benefits, identification, job applications, a bank account, a driving license, library access, a marriage certificate, and PO boxes.

The reason people need support the most is the reason they are prevented from accessing it.
