Newham council will ‘try’ to help E15 mothers

Issue No. 2379

Newham council officials last week agreed to “try to find social housing in London” for the Focus E15 mothers. It had previously refused to help rehouse the 29 young women and their children either in social housing or in London.

Their mother and baby unit is closing because the council withdrew £41,000 funding. “We’re very happy,” said Jasmin Stone, “but we’re carrying on campaigning to make sure they do.”
