HOMELESSNESS. WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
The definition of homelessness means not having a home. You are homeless if you have nowhere to stay and are living on the streets, but you can also be homeless even if you have a roof over your head: if you are staying with friends or family, staying in a hostel, night shelter, B&B, Women’s Refuge, in emergency accommodation, in a squat, sofa surfing, living somewhere temporarily without a tenancy agreement, at risk of violence or abuse in your home, living in poor conditions that affect your health, living apart from your family because you don’t have a place to live together or living in a car or tent. Homelessness also means if living in a houseboat with no legal means to moor it, or a caravan or mobile home but have no means to legally park it.
Our mission is the relief of poverty among the street homeless/rough sleepers and homeless through the provision of items to support basic needs such as sleeping bags, ground sheets, survival sheets, blankets, clothing, food and toiletries. We also aim to improve the individual’s welfare through emotional support, even if it’s just a smile or by signposting them to other services. We endeavour to prevent harm to health by referring to emergency and similar services as and when necessary throughout Hastings, St Leonards, Eastbourne and Bexhill.
