Local charities are asking people to help rough sleepers by donating to recognised organisations and not giving on the street.
The Make Change Count campaign is all about getting the right help at the right time for those who are sleeping on our streets.
Brighton Housing Trust, Equinox, St Mungo’s and Antifreeze are working together to raise awareness about support available for rough sleepers and how to help. Local organisations make sure those in need have hot meals, access to shower facilities, clothing and support from outreach workers to move people away from the street to rebuild their lives.
Giving money on the street can be counter-productive and lead to people staying in their current situation. You can help by supporting charities working directly with the people on our streets. Working together everyone in this caring city really can make a difference.
Donate today by texting UMCC17 £3 to 70070 or go to http://just.ly/makechangecount17 The campaign is supported Brighton & Hove City Council and Sussex Police.
