More shelters for the homeless in Lincolnshire

More shelters for the homeless in Lincolnshire

Please open more shelters for the homeless in Lincolnshire - now!

Why is this important?

Last week was one of the coldest weeks we’ve had in a long time . Whilst out on the street we saw people sleeping in door ways with nowhere to go. Local support workers and people who work for homeless shelters told us they were completely packed and didn't have enough space to let in more people.

Recently, in Bristol and London, homeless people have been dying on the streets from hyperthermia. In Brighton alone 17 people died in 2017. And last week a homeless man in Lincolnshire died in his tent. This cannot go on.

Reasons for signing

  • Homeless is big problem in the uk something should be doing all together
  • There are plenty of places that could be used as permanent housing for the homeless. There's no excuse.
  • It's unacceptable that people should have to sleep out at any time, and especially when it's so cold. Open up places for them to get some shelter, please.
