St Mungo's loses City contract
July 11th 2009
Luton Sinfield, of St Mungo's community services, told The Pavement: "St Mungo's will no longer be providing street outreach services in the City of London after March of this year. We're very sorry to no longer be the contracted provider, but will continue to work with the City of London Corporation to develop new and innovative routes off the street for those sleeping rough."
He added: "We'll also be working closely with Broadway, the new provider, to ensure a smooth transition, so rough sleepers in the area will not face any further hardships due to the change in contractor. We would like to pass on our thanks to everybody who has worked alongside us as we have enabled people to move their lives on from the streets. We hope that the success we have had can be continued and that joint initiatives will mean that no-one finds themselves sleeping on the streets of the Square Mile or anywhere else."
