August update from Cllr Karen Constantine

Cllr Karen Constantine's August Report.


"The homelessness and housing crisis continues with families and more usually, single men, contacting me on a weekly basis for help and support. Some of these individuals cases are taking a long time to resolve.

A small group of travellers were camped out near to the Tesco store on Manston road.  I went to talk to them, to see how they were. It was an interesting conversation. Some of the mums wanted to stay and get their small children into a local school. They were really surprised to hear that 'settled' people had housing issues! They offered to help. They have since moved on.

Unite the Union held a street stall in the middle of Ramsgate recently on homelessness and the housing crisis, I spend sometime there chatting people and did a short interview.

People are still approaching me with employment-related matters and I'm assisting as much as I can. Local residents are welcome to contact me. I will give good advice and moral support.

On a lighter note I popped into Newington Summer Fayre and started my Christmas shopping. Great to get a head start and support local businesses."
