Please read through the principles and actions of The London Charter to End Rough Sleeping, and show your support by signing here.
The Charter explained
Accepting that whilst people sleeping rough may have problems, they aren't problem people.
Ensuring help is in place to prevent people sleeping rough in the first place. We need to address the underlying causes and what traps people on the street.
Recognising that everyone rough sleeping is unique, and there should be meaningful options for all, regardless of immigration status.
Working with people who have experienced sleeping rough to develop and deliver solutions.
Helping people thrive
Putting in place the support, community links, and accommodation that people need to thrive.
Safety for everyone
Ensuring that people sleeping rough are safe from violence, abuse, theft and discrimination, and that they have the full protection of the law.
Acknowledging people when they talk to you or ask you for money, even if you decide you would rather not give it to them directly.
