Townwatch UK is supporting those in need across the UK, this also includes supporting the many charities, councils, and churches involved and our current focus is homelessness.
Townwatch Uk aim’s to work on a solution for radically reducing homelessness as our first mission. We have researched homelessness both from first-hand experience and also from the experienced homeless volunteer experiences. We have realised our insight from our lived experiences can be highly useful. Our results will be published once we come up with a proposed solution, but we already have 12 months of walking in the homeless community’s shoes and will publish our journal in the posts page very soon. This is created by our founder who is a journalist that became homeless, His Experience serves to prove it can happen to anyone. We actively patrol the streets and ensure any homeless are referred to the relevant service/s, everyone is individual and some require different needs than the majority.
We work closely with local and national charities to provide a wide support network to the community. We publish solutions on homelessness, poverty, and many other issues that are affecting communities and we avoid publishing negative news. The ultimate aim is a better society for all whether rich or poor.
Townwatch UK Supports Sreetlink
we support Streetlink and add people we find to their record, by finding homeless people sleeping rough with our Nightwatch approach, we aim to meet their immediate needs and provide food, water, and a phone to use if they need to get a message to someone, Streetlink tells us to let them know to wait up to 48 hours in the same place and someone will reach out to them, so meeting their immediate needs is very important. We reach out to charities such as HARP, SVP, or The one love project in the local area we began in Southend-On-Sea. We ensure that homeless people we find can often get immediate assistance via these charities to the people most in need. We have the ability to identify real homeless people through our combined and lived experiences.
