Southend's homeless charity is spearheading a new campaign pressing for an end to people sleeping rough on the streets.
It can only be...yes, you guessed it!
Harp has launched It’s Time, an initiative aimed at halting the number of people living on Southend’s streets.
Jackie Bliss, Harp’s chief executive, is eager to win Government backing for the charity’s efforts.
The charity is inviting people in the constituencies of Southend West and Rochford and Southend East to sign a letter to Sir David Amess and James Duddridge, asking the MPs to use their influence at national level to make a real, lasting impact on homelessness.
OK, how, exactly? There's nothing in here to say just exactly what 'the government' is supposed to do...
She added: “A return to pre-Covid levels of homelessness is unthinkable.”
Well, you surely don't expect them to be housed in hotels at taxpayer expense forever. Do you?
