Mayor of London launches new Rough Sleeper Campaign

Rough SleepingClarion is proud to support the launch of the Mayor of London’s new Rough Sleeping Campaign ‘No one needs to sleep rough in London’.

The campaign which sees homelessness charities working with the Mayor of London and local councils, aims to help Londoners be more involved in helping rough sleepers in the capital.

To support the Mayor’s focus on helping rough sleepers, 18 charities with decades of combined experience in tackling homelessness have come together, for the first time, forming a unique group to provide a single point for donations. By giving your money to this coalition of charities, you can be confident your donation will be distributed fairly and provide real help for rough sleepers.

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: "We’ve already started to make progress in helping rough sleepers in London, but we must continue to take action because one person sleeping rough is always one too many.

I know there are millions of Londoners who want to do something to help rough sleepers get off the streets for good. That’s why I am pleased to be joining forces with our new coalition of charities dedicated to this cause, offering a single donation point for Londoners who want to give money to those who need help the most. I urge Londoners to donate and join me in helping people sleeping on our streets to connect with vital services."

Donate today, and help make sure no-one needs to sleep rough in London.
