In every large town there are the homeless. The provision of sheltered accommodation would give a free place for the homeless to sleep, all year round. Many towns have accommodation open at Christmas time only. People who would think twice about getting into a homeless situation, may not think it so bad if they know that there is somewhere for them to go.
Sheltered accommodation would need people in charge, so it would give people the opportunity to talk to someone about problems. Sheltered accommodation would cut down on loneliness, and would create a sense of community. Some people don’t like “beggars” on the streets, sheltered accommodation would move people off the streets. Some families lose their homes through repossession, sheltered accommodation would give these people a place to go.
