Millions of UK Families Cut Food to Pay for Homes

A new report from Shelter reveals 27 per cent of the 4,000 people questioned have cut back on gas and electricity bills to help pay their rent or mortgage.

Nearly a third had cut back on food, as 64 per cent of families with children say they struggled to pay their rent or mortgage last year.

"These startling figures show the daily heartache millions of parents are going through as they face the choice between putting food on the table and paying for the roof over their head," said Campbell Robb, Shelter’s chief executive.

"The effects of the recession, the rising cost of housing and cuts to the housing safety net have left many families in a very vulnerable position.
Every fifteen minutes a family in England finds themselves homeless."
