How are migration and homelessness linked in the United Kingdom?

Over recent years, advice workers have found it increasingly difficult to resolve problems for migrant individuals and families who are destitute. Working with refugees and vulnerable migrants was never easy but, for the first time, the well-worn routes out of homelessness, so carefully crafted by progressive legislation and homelessness agencies, seemed to be closed to them. We are observing a trend backed up by homelessness statistics of an emerging group of homeless people. They were born outside of the UK, with uncertain immigration status and limited entitlement to state support.
