Salford named Repossesion hot spot

Standard

380 homes in the last year,

Question what help have the Labour Council given to those effected?

Is this putting a strain on Council homes being available to people waiting on the list for excessive time scales.

Does this have any thing to do with the Condem cuts and forced Job Losses?

A hostel that shelters up to 40 vulnerable men each night faces closure under a Salford council review of funding for the homeless.

Lancaster House on Lancaster Road in Claremont is run by charity Positive Lifestyles and has an average occupancy of 93 per cent.

It costs £238,000 a year to run the facility, which is currently funded through three grants from Supporting People – a government initiative.

But this is under threat as part of a review of services for vulnerable and homeless people.

If funding is withdrawn, bosses say it will close on September 30 with the loss of 14 jobs.

The hostel acts as a training and resettlement centre, offering job seeking advice, training and counselling
