The Stand and Deliver campaign was part of Simon Week 2014 (29th September – 5th October). We in the Simon Communities asked everyone to sign our letter to Cabinet, urging them to stand by their promise to end long term homelessness by delivering sufficient housing.
Over 10,000 people signed our Simon Week 2014 Stand and Deliver letter. By doing adding their voice to ours they helped ensure that the homelessness and housing crisis is on the Government’s agenda.
We are still concerned for the future. There are nearly 90,000 households on the social housing waiting list. Private rents are increasing rapidly and the numbers of homes to rent are reducing this is forcing both individuals and families into homelessness.
We need your continued support in helping to ensure the Government sticks to their commitment to ending long term homelessness by 2016.
You can continue to stand up for people who are homeless by supporting your local Simon Community.
Together we are making a difference – and can continue to do so. We cannot do it without your support. Thank you.
