Introduce new homeless scheme.
Community work tirelessly, self funded to help homeless. Resources are running low.
Street link and associated charities cannot cope. Shelter should be available 24 hours a day to prevent returning to street. If there is space enough in freezing weather, there should be space all of the time.
Pool all existing homeless groups and charities. Offer a scheme which brings empty buildings including churches, into use as day centres offering rehabilitation. The rehabilitated then volunteer at the centre - cleaning, laundry, cooking, outreach - in return for shelter until homed
Once homed, they work for the council, doing the jobs the council say they have no resources for - such as helping to refurbish further empty homes and buildings and community service in return for ongoing welfare.
