Ahead of this week's Homelessness Awareness Week, Bedford Homeless Partnership launched a Charter that was co-produced by organisations and people with lived experience of homelessness to bring together businesses, educational establishments, organisations, politicians and the general public to help end homelessness in our borough.

I was pleased to make my own pledges, these were:

  • I pledge to ensure that homelessness and rough sleeping remain a top priority for Bedford Borough Council.
  • I will ensure that we continue to lobby the government to prioritise homelessnes and rough sleeping nationally.
  • I will ensure that Bedford Borough Council respects the rights of homeless people and work to ensure homeless people can continue to access all our services.
  • I will continue to regularly meet with people with lived experience of homelessness and those working in the sector, and visit services.
  • I will continue to promote the excellent work being done by both the voluntary and statutory homelessness sector in Bedford Borough.
