MAKE SOME NOISE
If you can’t make it to any of the demonstrations on the day, then why not motivate discussion about the shocking state of homelessness in the UK and abroad. Remember: Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other social media sites are all good strategies for getting the message across. Why not email your local MP?

PETITION WARWICK DISTRICT COUNCIL
Join this local petition on change.org made by Leamington Claimants Union to Warwick District Council. We asked the council to: “Be Aware of your Duty of Care to the Homeless and Vulnerably Housed.” This is a petition to ask Warwick District Council to either abolish the Spare Bedroom Tax and the Council Tax for benefit claimants in the Warwick District area (they are, after all, totally draconian stealth taxes) – or – Set up a Night Shelter.* Follow the link below to SIGN THE PETITION…
SIGN THE PETITION
*In Warwick District, if you are homeless, there are a few services which may be able to help you: A Night Shelter for two nights a week – Wednesday & Sunday nights – Radford Road Methodist Church – Run by volunteers. Rough Sleeper Outreach Team – Run by Midland Heart and the Way Ahead Project – Street Homeless support – Run by Salvation Army. THERE IS CURRENTLY NO NIGHT SHELTER OPERATING ALL WEEK.
