Don't use Public Space Protection Orders to fine people for begging.
Why is this important?
The idea of fining those who already have so little, that they are forced to sleep out in the cold or ask for food and money is a cruel and heartless act. This is attacking vulnerable people and does not resolving the issues homeless people face.
Other campaigns have successfully stopped other councils from imposing similar fines.
This campaign is based on this information from Shepway council's website:
If you have anything that suggests that Shepway Council are no longer able to fine people for begging then we'd love to hear more from you, drop us an email at email@example.com
