Westminster drops rough sleeping byelaw
Following sustained campaigning from the Simon Community and a wide range of other organisatons, Westminster Council has decided to drop its proposed bye law making rough sleeping a criminal offense in parts of the borough. There remains a threat to the operation of our outreach work in the Borough and we are committed to finding a way to keep these running in the best way possible. However, this is a very positive step. In the meantime we would like to say an enormous thank you to all those who campaigned and 'lay down' for themselves over the last few months!
