StreetLink is a website, mobile app and phone line, which enables the public to alert Local Authorities about people sleeping rough in England and Wales.
Help people sleeping rough, don't just move the problem on
— Laurie Penny (@PennyRed) June 7, 2014
It’s shocking to see the use of metal spikes to discourage rough sleeping and hardly helps deal with the rising number of people who are forced to sleep on our streets.
Many people who sleep rough just don’t know where to turn and are amongst the most vulnerable in our society. Sleeping on the streets is dangerous, bad for your health and individuals need support.
This approach is not only inhumane, it does nothing to tackle the causes of rough sleeping and just moves the issue on for someone else to deal with.
