Gavin "This problem has virtually nothing to do with the level of housing need in general nor the changes that are being made to the benefits system"
I see so rough sleepers should simply be left in hostels then? They dont move on to their own accommodation after the hostel? There is no link between that and benefits system? So the SAR is a myth and ethereal?
Is that the same hostel environment which has seen 4000 bed spaces being lost since 2008? Is that the support system that has seen massive losses of funding (SP)?
The same SP that allows those requiring support with DV, MH, ALD and all other support areas able to get support with the exception of....yes youve guessed it....rough sleeping who councils insist have local connection to the area.
How nice of you to inform us that the charities concerned DONT record how rough sleeper have ended up on the street!!
Gavin your omniscience is an example to us all!!
