I get the occasional resident mention rough-sleeping, and it feels to me like there is a small but perceptible increase in this in Southend. This is another sign of a failing economy and the cuts to support services.
There is a new web-based service that allows people to report rough-sleepers – http://www.streetlink.org.uk/tell-us-about-a-rough-sleeper
This is not about punishing these unfortunates, but rather offering help and support. For more information read here.
