The individuals from the Groves have moved on to other encampments – I’m not going to disclose the whereabouts, as I think the undue attention was particularly aversive to people who really do just want to be left alone.
They felt very vulnerable on the Groves as it came under increasing scrutiny.
One thing I can confirm is that none save 2 have been offered suitable accommodation by the services or the council.
The situation has not improved at all – the problem has just been moved
Bubble – you sound like a very bitter person.
You know nothing of the degree of insight I have into addiction, you’re not interested either!
Your posts are all very personal, and attack me, rather than debate the subject. I wonder why this is?
Two possibilities spring to mind immediately, there are others.
I’ll keep my counsel for the time being – as I’ve said, I don’t like to judge.
Derek Jackson – you have hit the nail very squarely on the head.
Our services are ineffective and short sighted. There should be an evidence based review of the whole structure
It’s not in my nature to judge, either side – I’ll leave that to others, who do it far better than me.
Maybe you could oblige .. ?
Absolutely – it was a disgrace!
What are they playing at?
I support the idea of useful occupation – though I wouldn’t make their home dependent on it.
The WAG money is ringfenced to tackle homelessness. It can’t be spent on anything else.
Zinger – there’s 2.1m available from the Welsh government and plenty of empty council owned buildings.
The old county courts? Why not there?
‘someone brings a load of shoplifted items there would you report them or accept it is part of their everyday life and society needs to accept it goes on. Perhaps some of the ‘do gooders’ who visit the site actually buy some of the bargains that are for sale there.’ quote!
That’s an accusations!
You’re also wandering around in the world of supposition – I’ve never seen any shoplifted goods on the camp, so wouldn’t have opportunity to advise either way.
There have been no helpful suggestions, so how do you judge that I’m rejecting them because of the shade of the political party making them?
Your post is nothing more than the ramblings of someone who presumes that they know what is going on when they don’t!
Uninformed and lacking insight.
Again – either retract your libellous statement or show yourself.
They need supported accommodation – somewhere where they can learn life and social skills. Most of these individuals aren’t able to manage a tenancy, if I’m being realistic, but the available shelters are insufficient in number and offer inadequate support for long term success.
Obviously every person has different skills and needs – I’m not saying one size fits all – I just don’t believe that the answer for many is a tenancy,
However, I do believe that the starting point should be a guaranteed roof.
Real life dictates that this must come with rules, but they need to be realistic and achievable.
For many, total abstinence is neither of those things. Not yet.
And I’ve just read your libellous accusation of receiving stolen goods!
I challenge you to reveal your true identity for the attention of my solicitor or retract immediately
