Homeless people in Southport are you doing your bit to help them? July 30th, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments Homeless people in Southport are you doing your bit to help them? Up to one dozen people will sleep rough on the streets of Southport tonight, some are skilled, intelligent and likeable people, and many of whom want to work. One has even made home in Eastbank Street toilets where he has lived for over a year. Homeless people are not any different from the rest of us. When we pass someone on the street, that person is someone no different to you or me, except they are currently in real crisis. Homelessness begins when something bad happens and you don’t have family or friends around to help. It could happen to any of us. With support, people can and do leave homelessness behind – however, the current financial climate means fewer specialist workers and more people sleeping rough. Did you know that more than 70% of homeless people are being discharged from hospital back onto the streets, damaging their health and costing the NHS money.
