SNW know there are many reasons why someone may become homeless. I affects individuals & communities. SNW believe everyone should have a place to go to for support if they find themselves in this situation & want to work together with the people & businesses of the borough of Sutton to achieve positive futures for people who are homeless or vulnerably housed.
To achieve this ambition, they need to be able to:
1. Offer practical assistance (food, clothes etc)
2. Ensure if a person does become homeless, it's for the shortest time possible by offering access to housing services.
3. Provide those with complex problems the opportunity to interact with specialist services by signposting users correctly.
4. Support people to realise their potential & avoid becoming homeless again by providing basic education to those who need it.
Lisa Brown – Director of Sutton Night Watch said "When Sutton Night Watch was first created, our goal was to ensure no one slept on the streets of our borough on an empty stomach. We have absolutely done our best to help as many as we could however, we have come to realise we are in a great position to be able to think bigger & create a hugely positive change to not only help our existing service users but to help tackle homelessness in its entirety. The #55Appeal will not only benefit the service users but will bring in the local businesses & community as they will be the ones creating this amazing change".
