Protest petition over cuts hitting homeless

A petition has been launched by charity Oxford Homeless Pathways to fight budget cuts proposed by Oxfordshire County Council.

Under plans to save £64m over the next four years, it wants to cut its £4m housing-related support budget by £1.5m.

Oxford Homeless Pathways chief executive Lesley Dewhurst warned that the cuts could result in the closure of one of the city’s three hostels – O’Hanlon House, run by Oxford Homeless Pathways, Lucy Faithfull House or Simon House.

How many of the residents of the three hostels are actually from Oxford I wonder?

Any resident has to have a local connection to the city. Mind you, street homeless is street homeless, wherever they come from.
