The Brighton and Hove Housing Coalition brings together groups of activists in the City and the surrounding area to coordinate action and spread information and news about all housing issues. We are independent of local and national government and self funding. Our aims and objectives are to provide an independent voice that supports tenants, leaseholders, homeless and people in temporary or emergency accommodation. Together we can make a greater difference.
John Hadman on Homelessness in Brighton and Hove 2017
4,111 members of the Brighton and Hove community signed my first petition to open night shelters and my latest petition on 38 degrees tiny.cc/shelter365 has over 4,900 signatures reflecting the strength of feeling within the community and I believe we should work to implement their wishes.
If this report encourages you to put forward your ideas and to bring an end to rough sleeping and homelessness then it will have achieved a great thing.
I would appreciate and welcome any feedback you may have once you have read it.

SWEP Updates on Dave Thomas' Blog
As many have said, the present operation of SWEP (the severe weather emergency protocol) is very unsatisfactory. I have written it up in a blog post which gives details of what SWEP is, what has changed, and what needs to change further. The protocol itself, original and amended, is not publicly available, which is symptomatic of the problems in this area.
