Working to deal with rough sleeping

I have been working alongside Conservative colleagues on Westminster City Council to deal with rough sleeping across the West End.

Action by Westminster Conservatives to tackle rough sleeping across the West End and the city means that 75% of those contacted do not spend a second night out on the street.

The Council spends over £6m a year to help rough sleepers find sustainable accommodation and to tackle mental and physical problems.

Despite the work already being done to reduce the issue I continue to raise concerns with officers when I see tents or other rough sleeping-related incidents.

If you come across any related issues please do not hesitate to contact me.
