Statement for Cllr Jas Athwal:
No one has to sleep rough in Redbridge this Christmas – this is my pledge to residents and I am delighted to be delivering on this promise next week when we open our new rough sleeping shelter.
I am determined to end rough sleeping in our borough and am working hard to create an enduring and sustainable alternative – providing all those who currently sleep rough in Redbridge with a safe and warm place to stay as well as help and support to turn their lives around.
Everyone should have a warm place to sleep where they feel safe and cared for, especially in the cold winter months and in Redbridge we are making sure no one is left behind this Christmas.
