Homelessness in the Parish

The way Streetlink works is that the call centre contacts local services. The Outreach workers have to be able to find the homeless person in the evening. So if you make a referral during the daytime, it’s worth trying to establish where the homeless person intends to spend the night. Of course some may not want to say, and that has to be respected.
The Outreach worker will try to get the person to engage with homelessness services, which can include hostel referral, medical and addiction help, financial advice etc., all with the aim of getting the person off the streets and into permanent accommodation.

Pick Amberley
Pick Amberley is a community litter task-force which began July 2019. We are volunteers who clean up our environment for the benefit of local wildlife, to prevent the contamination of waterways and to enhance all of our enjoyment of the place we call home.

We work in partnership with Horsham Council, who supply equipment and collect rubbish after each pick. The Bridge Inn also kindly sponsors us with a well-earned drink after each meeting.

We meet for 2 hours on the afternoon of the second Sunday of the month. 1-3pm in Winter, 2pm – 4pm British Summer Time. This coming weekend being our seventh meeting to date.

For now, Pick Amberley can be found on Listserve and on Twitter @AmberleyPick
