Real change, not loose change

A new joint campaign to tackle rough sleeping in the borough - ‘Real Change, Not Loose Change’ has been launched.

With an estimated 15 to 30 people sleeping on the borough’s streets at any one time, residents and businesses in Basingstoke and Deane are being urged to help make a real difference by supporting the initiative to address homelessness and rough sleeping locally.

The ‘Real Change, Not Loose Change’ campaign is raising money for local homelessness schemes and urging residents to alert homelessness services about people sleeping on the streets. It is being driven by the Social Inclusion Partnership, a group of key organisations, voluntary, faith and community groups and charities brought together by the council as part of an innovative joined-up move to reduce rough sleeping.
