SNAP survey reveals worrying homeless trends

Posted by on 5 April 2012 | 0 Comments

The annual SNAP survey by Homeless Link shows worrying trends in services for people who are homeless. At Equinox we are particularly disturbed to see the number of people who are turned away because services do not feel able to provide for their needs. Another concern is the slight decline in the availability of specialist services for onward referral.

Chief Executive of Equinox, Bill Puddicombe, commented; "Seen together, these findings suggest that people with the highest, most complex needs are not getting the help that they need and, once again, highlights the need for better planning in providing effective services for this group.”
