Re-Open Dock House

Re-Open Dock House

Provide funding to re open a much needed hostel to provide night shelter to the homeless. 18 beds are already available to be used.

Why is this important?

As winter draws nearer, temperatures will plummet making the rough sleepers of Hull even more vulnerable. A warm bed and a shower could could potentially save lives. Although there are other hostels in Hull, these do not provide enough beds to the rise in homelessness.

  • Homelessness is a human emergency issue, and it's disgraceful of any government to preside over it, especially in an affluent society.
