Hugo's new campaign set to prevent homelessness

Worcester Editorial 28th Sep, 2016 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016   0

A FORMER homeless man from Worcester has launched a new campaign to highlight just how close we all are to becoming homeless.

Hugo Sugg, founder of ‘#HugosEarthquake’, has today (Wednesday) launched the ‘#WhereIsYourNextHome’ campaign which will shine a light on a series of events, from someone losing their job to receiving an eviction notice or a debt letter, which could lead to someone becoming homeless.

Working with Worcester City Council, CCP and St Paul’s Hostel, Hugo hopes the campaign will show how preventing someone from becoming homeless in the first place is better than solving the problem once someone has nowhere to live.

A campaign spokesperson said: “Preventing the onset homelessness is much more important than curing it because it avoids the stress, costs and worries associated with having nowhere to go.

“Through this campaign, we want to point people in the right direction to get advice and assistance as soon as possible.”
