Homeless in Fareham Conference July 11th

Councillor Katrina Trott says; “I am delighted that FBC's leader has at last arranged a Conference to find a way forward for constructive help for the unfortunate people who sadly sit around our Town Centre, sleep in car park stair wells or camp in The Gillies or various places in Fareham East.”

“Sadly some are addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. We do have the Two Saints run hostel at 101 Gosport Road which is shared with Gosport. There are too few beds there and some people choose not to be there, even if there is space.”

“As former Councillor, Dr. Maryam Brady and I have previously called for in Council meetings, there is a need for more Outreach workers to encourage and mentor those suffering from addiction. It is insufferable that the areas around St. Peter and Paul Church and Holy Trinity Church plus other public areas around our Ward and the town, should have residents including schoolchildren witness to drug taking and detritus. Clearing up needles, foil, broken bottles is dangerous!”

“Through conversations with Fareham Citizen's Advice staff I have heard that our MP is arranging a similar Conference with a slightly different remit and invitees on July 13th.”

“Sadly there are too few places where people can stay and be helped to overcome their addiction. There are too few places to live when they are clean. Too few mental health workers. This all comes down to decisions about what and where to spend money!!”
