With homelessness on the rise we are finding ourselves dealing with Rough Sleepers more than ever. This is never an easy task to carry out but as with any job we do everything we can to treat people ethically and professionally. We deal with Rough Sleepers under Common Law. This process is never rushed, we try to work with them and make sure they take all their belongings with them. Our teams carry warm clothing, blankets and water in their cars to hand out to rough sleepers when moving them on. We also offer to buy them a hot drink and some food if possible and our office team collate useful numbers and contacts in the area we are working in so that the team on attendance can make contact and try and get the persons being moved some support if they are willing or want it.
A lot of homeless people we come across come from a military/service background and this is very close to us as a business as a lot of our employees are ex service personnel. Quite often we come across Rough sleepers with dogs, we carry what we can for the dogs as well depending on what is in stock from our donation bank we run back in the office. The business puts a request out for donation twice a year to be able to top up the stock to hand out when we can.
Homelessness is close the heart of the business and we do all we can to try and help people in this very difficult situation.Contact Us Now
