The purpose of World Homeless Day is to draw attention to people who experience homelessness needs locally and provide opportunities for the community to get involved in responding to homelessness while taking advantage of the stage an ‘international day’ provides.
In our District there is a relatively low number of homelessness, however, even one homeless person is one too many.
Recently residents have raised concerns about a homeless couple in Rayleigh High Street and a homeless man on the London Road. These cases have been referred to the Council’s housing team by your Lib Dem Councillors.
What can you do if you suspect someone is homeless?
Report the case via the Streetlink website or app which will be passed to the Councils outreach case team
