    “Streetlink”, a system whereby the public can get people informed about problems related to rough sleeping, thereby ensuring support is being mobilised.

    The system which was launched by Rough Sleepers Cymru, a coalition of homelessness charities has had a successful year with more than 795 referrals since it was launched.

    According to Anthony Kandall, chair of Rough Sleepers, Cymru:

    “Streelink helps people make a real difference.

    “Often, we can feel helpless seeing the increase in rough sleeping. By contacting Streetlink, the public knows that individuals are being noticed, and can be confident services will help them.”

    One can become a Streetlink Champion by visiting www.streetlink.org.uk and signing up after which posters and further information about the service can be sent.

    Vice chair of Rough Sleepers Cymru, Lesley Phoenix also said:

    “The best way of ending rough sleeping is for us to notice it. We need to ensure that we don’t just walk past. Streetlink is a start.

    “But more people need to know about it. We need the public to get involved, not to walk past.”

    Responding to the DWP Consultation:  Housing Benefit Reform - Supported Housing

    "It was well-run, in a good location, and very useful.  I've only one suggestion; as the session went on it would perhaps have been useful for bullet points of general agreement about what should be in the sector response to be displayed and added to as the session went on, maybe on a flip chart. Regarding your response paper, I particularly like the answer you give to question 9.  In fact the general: "if it ain't broke don't fix it" response could be pushed harder."
