The wonderful 999 Club has launched a crowdfunding campaign to provide homeless people in Lewisham with a much needed summer night shelter.
I’m incredibly proud to have the 999 Club in my constituency. Its night shelters offer a fantastic service to rough sleepers, not only providing them with a safe place to sleep but also offering assistance with employment, benefits and access to healthcare.
It’s easy to assume that homeless people need more help in the winter, but the summer brings its own problems with increased risks from violence and anti-social behaviour.
If you can spare a few pounds, please consider donating: www.crowdfunder.co.uk/summershelter
