Nick 4 Homes
"It is plainly obvious that we need a new approach in Manchester City Centre if we are to help the most vulnerable living on our streets into more fulfilling lives. We need a true voice for the homeless within the Council, someone who understands the problem and has a track record of getting things done and helping people."
Helping Hand 5 Point Manifesto:
In consultation with homeless people on the streets in Manchester city centre, we have created a manifesto that captures a real sense of what vulnerable people have told us and what I intend to deliver if elected.
1 Find me sooner – let’s be proactive:
I will ensure a focus on new vulnerable people and preventing their downward spiral
2 Treat me like a person – let’s treat people with respect
I will ensure all agencies and services are rated on customer service standards
3 Help me quicker – let’s help immediately:
I will ensure that services respond immediately when people ask for help
4 Always offer me help – let’s try and then try again:
I will ensure that vulnerable people are given as many chances as they need to change for the better
5 Put me first – not your agency
I will ensure that all agencies focus on the best outcome for an individual and work together to achieve results
