Camden Liberal Democrats are supporting New Horizon’s campaign for an all year round youth shelter after calling for a scoping study in our Budget Amendment this year.
Four in five young people aged between 16 and 25 sleeping rough in London do not present to their local authority as homeless. And when the winter shelters close in March, there aren’t places for young people to stay if they need a bed that night.
We are urging the Council to establish an all-year-round night shelter for young people who are at risk of or are rough sleeping in the borough.
On Monday, the 1st of April join us in demanding better by tweeting your support for New Horizons campaign using the hashtag #ThisIsNoJoke you can also donate to their emergency fund by clicking here - this helps them do their important work on finding emergency accommodation for young people.
