Homelessness doesn’t just affect the homeless. It affects every one of us. Labour councillors have campaigned for more affordable homes to rent and buy across the district. We also want to see no-one sleeping rough – a situation all too common in 21st Century Britain.
We organised a petition signed by hundreds of people across our district bringing this situation to the District Council. We changed council policy towards investing in new homes. We will continue to work until everyone has a decent home as a base for them and their family. We are all better off if everyone has a safe and warm home.
