The campaign in Leicester is led by Action Homeless a local Homelessness Charity on behalf of the Leicester Homelessness Partnership. It is part of a coordinated approach to tackle street homelessness and to support those on the street to access sustainable accommodation.
Volunteers will go out to meet those on the street as part of their Connections Week* in November 2017.
* A Connections Week is a week of local action that harnesses the knowledge of commitment of those working in homelessness organisations, those sleeping on the streets and the further local community. Local campaign teams ensure that every individual on the street is spoken to, listened to, interviewed and asked to tell their full story of their journey on to the streets and their situation now. This information is then used to make sure services and support truly reflects the needs, hopes and demands of homeless people.
