Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has praised the work of local homelessness charity Friends First after he visited the Night Shelter project last week.
The Night Shelter project is a joint venture between the churches of Brighton & Hove, which was successfully piloted during February and March 2012, when they offered overnight accommodation for up to 15 guests each night who would otherwise have been sleeping rough during the winter months. Mike met with Serena Crisp and Adrian Willard in Hove to discuss details of the scheme. For more information on Friends First, click here.
Commenting, Mike said: “I was really impressed by the Night Shelter project. Homelessness is a big problem in Brighton & Hove and I am always amazed by the work that volunteers do to help the vulnerable people in our society. I look forward to working with the shelter in the future to ensure that homeless people in the city are getting the care and services that they need.”
