City needs ac­tion on rough sleep­ers

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -

MANY rough sleep­ers have been given the chance to go home af­ter mi­grant camps in Peter­bor­ough have been vis­ited by of­fi­cials.

a sur­vey by the city coun­cil re­vealed 26 rough sleep­ers in the city cen­tre, 22 of whom were mi­grants.

That shows the ex­tent of the prob­lem. The rough sleep­ers need help and the city can’t sus­tain them.

The scheme which has tack­led 77 cases so far is a start but more needs to be done to solve the prob­lem in the city.
