Tackling Rough Sleeping

Our city has more rough sleepers on its streets than the next four highest London boroughs combined. Despite doing much good outreach work in this area, Westminster Council faces an uphill battle if it cannot stem the number of rough sleepers becoming entrenched in a street lifestyle. That’s why I will continue to support the Council’s efforts to stop vulnerable people from becoming long-term rough sleepers by pressing the Government for greater powers to remove tents from public spaces.
