Street Zero Newcastle has today launched its vision that once and for all it aims to work towards the end rough sleeping by 2022 in Newcastle.

They believe that all of us have a moral right to decent housing, yet right now some people in our city are homeless. 

Their message “Homelessness is not a choice, it is the result of a build up of different pressures that can eventually affect anyone of us. We can so easily take for granted the strong support of family and friends, a home and a job. For anyone to cope with long-term health problems, broken relationships without this social network you can easily see that these accumulating pressures can eventually result in homelessness.”

Street Zero are campaigning to businesses and individuals for support for their scheme, you can find out more at their site or to donate.
