House Our Homeless
Help House Our Homeless In the UK.
Why is this important?
1) Rough sleeping
Since 2019 within the Uk there has been a drastic surge in rough sleepers with an increase of 169% over the last 10 years. (Butler, 2018)
Often these individuals are prone to the harsh environment of the outside world and suffer from extreme mental and physical issues.
2) Statutory homelessness
Only those with priority need get access to secure accommodation, i.e., pregnant women.
Local authorities in the UK do not legally have to secure single homeless people and couples without children. LETS CHANGE THIS!
3) Hidden Homeless
Currently within the UK we still see many people that are considered homeless that use hotels, friends and families as a means to get a roof over their head. (Reeve, 2018) However without this then where would they go?
These are the disguised and often most vulnerable societal group as they are out of sight and unable to be helped (Foster, 2017).
We cant allow these people to suffer anymore!
Real change happens when everyday people like you and I come together and stand up for what we believe in. Together we can reach heaps of people and help create change around this important issue. Lets sign this petition TOGETHER to raise awareness about our homeless and help give aid to those who NEED IT!!
