HAVING just read the news about homeless problems, it is sad to think we are all missing those people in need of hope and help for a multitude of reasons.

l have often thought each city centre should invest in one shelter where help, care and support is available to needy people. It’s a basic starting point.

Nobody should be excluded and it could be a place of refuge and information. City centres across UK surely should be coping with early intervention? Prevention is the answer.


I hope one day there will be a place like I imagine for all to benefit and so grow through whatever their problems may be, especially the young people.

There are plenty of vacant properties and empty churches.
