BHT to the rescue

 

Three people died on the street in Brighton over Christmas, one of them female it was reported in The Argus.  Space and time do not permit full coverage. Andy Winter CEO Brighton Housing Trust gave an acc0ount of the cost of rehabilitation. e.g Alcoholic Services cost  £7,166 per person and 60% of those who pass the course will be drug and alcohol free. Other costs include ambulance call outs and treatment. Residents achieving  ongoing  abstinence and a crime free life will be a great saving and benefit to society.

A cohesive strategy is required so that everybody from Police and Emergency Services as well as General Public and related organisations know how to cope. In addition, the Homeless themselves could be better informed of services immediately available to them.
