Liz pledges support for new homeless charter

[30/10/2018 | No comment]

I am extremely proud to have signed Leicester’s Homelessness Charter. 

The Charter brings together organisations from right across the city, including charities, businesses, the City Council, health services, the police and faith groups, to commit to work together to tackle homelessness. 

The number of people sleeping rough in our city has doubled since 2010. But that only tells half the story. People can find themselves homeless if they have no where to stay and that also includes people who are sleeping on a friend’s sofa, people who are staying in a hostel and people who have become homeless because of abuse of violence. 

No one should be sleeping rough on our streets or have no where to call home. By working together we can ensure that we prevent homelessness in our city. 

You can find out more about the charter here.
