Not having a home can make it harder for individuals to find a job, stay healthy and maintain relationships.
More than one in three families in England are a monthly pay packet away from losing their homes, according to research by Shelter.
The housing charity found that 37% of working families would be unable to cover their housing costs for more than a month if one partner lost their job.
Campbell Robb, the chief executive of Shelter, said:
These figures are a stark reminder that sky-high housing costs are leaving millions of working families stretched to breaking point and barely scraping by from one pay cheque to the next
The charity is calling for an improved welfare safety net to prevent families where someone loses a job from “hurtling towards homelessness”.
