Last year, Flick set up a campaign to help co-ordinate all the organisations helping the homeless. Flick was on the Homelessness Reduction Bill when she was an MP and knows that there is still much to do especially as the number of rough sleepers are increasing. There are so many organisations doing amazing work in Portsmouth and it is important that everyone works together so we can be more effective and cut out waste.
Flick and Cllr Paul Godier invited Street Support, which is based in Manchester, to set up a website and App that people living in Portsmouth can use to direct homeless people to help, food and shelter. It is proving to be very useful and we hope that everyone will download this free App so you can use it to point people in the right direction. You can also use the app to donate goods and your time.
You can find it at https://streetsupport.net/ or download the free Street Support app from the App store.
