These people who come to live in the UK from Europe, they come to learn English, they work hard, long hours and see the carnage on the streets as totally unbelievable and unnessessary. Why? because they don’t have this, yet they have much higher unemployment levels than the UK.
Following the recent report that a 21 year old rough sleeper in Brighton and Hove has sadly been found dead, the housing and homelessness establishment have responded. Andy Winter the Chief Exec at the Brighton Housing Trust wrote today:
Let me know what you think about these housing polices, will these policies make a difference to your lives?
Are you one of the 10,000 people who have recently been taken off the council housing waiting list?
If so let me know your thoughts and as always please share.
These are vulnerable persons who have been accepted the homeless duty under the housing act 1996. Many of the people I speak to are in desperate need of legal advice, you see in Brighton and Hove we have an issue, for some reason solicitors don’t touch housing cases against Brighton and Hove City Council, and why would they, because the council boast not losing a judicial review all the time.
Brighton and Hove City Council have begun the council waiting list cull, announced back in November 2015 the new allocations policy was designed to remove home seekers by cutting thousands of people from the register.
In a move in which literally the bulldozers are coming in to break down peoples hopes and dreams for a home.
Community Safety: £122k in Cuts for 2017, affecting; LGBT Community Services and the removal of the LGBT Housing Liaison Worker. Communities Against Drugs – Part Time Staff Member post gone. Get ready to see more drug parafunalia such as infected needles.
Today I live day by day, I am now living in Temporary Accommodation and fight daily to improve peoples lives, I am not fully recovered, but I am educated and I can tell you now that the only solution for a better future is for people like you reading this blog post now to stand up, speak out and help to chance our society.
It starts on the 24th September, in Liverpool the home of the exonerated, a city of dreams.
