Ensure the homeless get a roof over their head during this cold,winter lockdown.
The homeless got temporarily housed in hotels in the first lockdown and that was in the summer. Now that it's winter and the numbers of covid 19 deaths are up again, surely it would be the compassionate and responsible thing to do the same thing for them again.
I don't want the homeless who are more vulnerable to catch and spread covid.
I don't want them to freeze to death.
I want them to be supported like they were in March 2020, especially as it's even worse for them now in these winter conditions.

The Government announced £15 million of funding for the Protect Programme to help areas that need additional support most to provide accommodation for rough sleepers during the restrictions and throughout winter. This will run alongside the ongoing ‘Everyone In’ campaign. You can find out more here:
