New Rights Guide for Rough Sleepers launch event Monday 7 December 9.30pm


Housing Justice has joined together with Liberty, Zacchaeus 2000 and the
Pavement to produce a new Rights Guide for Rough Sleepers. 


The guide explains the law regarding issues such as stop-and-search, arrest,
dispersal zones and urinating in public places. It has been drawn up in
collaboration with people who use services such as the Salvation Army
Drop-in Centre and Women at the Well, who reported the most common and
distressing problems they experienced. 


We invite you to join us at the launch event on Monday 7 December to help to
distribute copies of the Rights Guide for Rough Sleepers to homeless people
on the streets of Central London. 


The launch is taking place at Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church 

235 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H 8EP
