Homelessness, wherever it is found is a sorry thing to behold and something we should all be concerned about.
After all the way a society cares for those in need is ultimately what speaks most about the priorities of a society as often these people have no voice other than that which is provided by those who are prepared to stand up and fight for them.
Homelessness is something that all parties should rally against and in all things work towards its elimination, especially as the Winter cold sets in. Portsmouth Labour answers this call with enthusiasm and a willingness to help.
Portsmouth Labour is firmly backing The News’ Christmas Appeal to aid those in need in our local communities.
The Labour Group is concerned that homelessness has more than doubled nationally under the Tory government – an increase we have seen in Portsmouth too.
Cllr Stephen Morgan, Portsmouth Labour Leader said:
“We’re joining community leaders and local faith groups in this sensible campaign.
I encourage anyone who can give this Christmas to support The News’ appeal at a time of year when the smallest gift can make the biggest difference and change a life”.
