We urge you to join us in signing the open letter from the charity @crisis_uk calling on political leaders to end homelessness within the next decade.

Hopestead strongly condemns the plans for the Criminal Justice Bill. and cannot support placing the burden of a failing system on the criminal system that is already at breaking point itself – the opportunity to end homelessness sits firmly with current and future politicians and they need to do far better than this.

This proposed bill not only overlooks the fundamental causes of homelessness but could also intensify the challenges faced by some of our community’s most vulnerable individuals. This approach, to think of punishing individuals for their sheer need to find a place to sleep on the streets, is morally wrong and misdirected.

Homelessness is a complex issue and can be influenced by a great many factors and the focus should instead be on providing essential support, resources, and housing solutions, rather than criminalising those in desperate situations.
