3 Ways to help Rough Sleepers in #rdg and keep people off the streets

1.  If you know where someone is sleeping rough or have information that might help email or call the St Mungos team who will work with them to help them get support: http://www.mungos.org/services/where_we_work/reading
UPDATE: you can contact Reading Street Outreach team on Tel: 0118 958 5002. If you are worried about a rough sleeper in Reading, email streetconcern@mungos.org

2  Make a regular donation if you can afford it to a charity like Launchpad, or find another way to raise money for them: http://www.launchpadreading.org.uk/

3.  The only way to stop Reading Council and local charities having to help more and more people is to change the national picture, and for that we need a government that will stop simply talking about rough sleepers and act to help.  Join the campaign to win back the Reading parliamentary seats to help secure a Labour government: http://www.victoriagroulef.co.uk/


Politics matters.  It can be a matter of life and death.
