Rough sleeper fears in Kent

 
June 5th 2014
 

A leading Kent charity fears homeless people may not get the support they need as it raises fears for the future of its rough sleeper outreach team, reports Kent News.

Porchlight says funding cuts have led to the number of outreach workers covering the county to fall to just six, half the number that it had a year ago.

Further cuts expected in 2015 will leave just four professional outreach workers covering one of the largest counties in England.

Chris Coffey, head of youth and community services at the charity, said the charity had helped 550 rough sleepers in the last year.

He added: "Our waiting list is now consistently over 50. With fewer staff on the ground and such a huge rural area to cover, we simply can’t locate everyone who needs help."
