Proactive support leads to reduction in rough sleeping
Proactive work by Colchester Borough Homes in partnership with Colchester Borough Council has led to a reduction in rough sleeping across the borough.
Last year the council was successful in securing government funding, which has helped to support the considerable work that has taken place throughout the winter to reduce rough sleeping in the borough.
