I am writing to ask for your support in putting an end to rough sleeping.
It was great to see all the main political parties making pledges to tackle rough sleeping in the run up to the general election. Indeed, the Conservative party itself committed to halve rough sleeping by 2022, and end it completely by 2027.
However, with rough sleeping on the rise, this ambitious aim needs strong leadership, and coordinated work across government, communities, health, welfare, police and housing agencies.
I support St Mungo's Stop the Scandal campaign, which has been calling for a new national rough sleeping strategy since February 2016.
As my MP, please could you tell me how you will help put an end to rough sleeping?
