No fines for homeless in Northampton

Sign a petition objecting to the proposed fines for homeless people asking for money or food on the streets of Northampton

Why is this important?

It targets vulnerable people and fines them when they are clearly not in a position to pay.

It criminalises people who are already at a low ebb and already face considerable challenges in getting their lives back on track.

It is a waste of taxpayers' money chasing people with no money through the judicial system for money that they cannot afford.
