Homelessness and especially manifested and prolonged homelessness has a big impact on our borough and the quality of life for everybody in the borough.
It has emerged that some homeless groups now start to wear high-viz vests and look like officials of some sort and congregate around certain areas with aggressive begging becoming concerning.
Tower Hamlets Council currently holds a consultation on the forthcoming strategy to tackle the issue. A decision is due by 28. November 2018.
Consultation via the
- homelessness Partnership Board
- Mail out and presentation through the Tower Hamlets Housing Forum
- Workshops with residents
- online consultation with the general public, draft document and survey
- internal Briefings
An Equality Impact Assessment is due by 17. September 2018
Any additional information can be obtained through firstname.lastname@example.org
I strongly recommend that all residents take part on the online consultation once available.
