I just wanted to inform you that in January of this year we gave our anonymised evidence and impact statements, collected from clients accessing Catching Lives, to St Mungo's Broadway in order that they use them in their Stop The Scandal campaign.
We continue to collect evidence and impact statements from clients who have been discharged from hospitals, particularly from mental health hospitals, to street homelessness. We have informed Julian Brazier on a number of occasions, have held meetings with St Martins in Canterbury, unfortunately the issue still exists.
When I found out that St Mungo's were starting a national campaign I needed the voices of our clients to be heard, so I had a meeting with their campaign team and our evidence was gratefully received.
St Mungo's launched their campaign in February of this year, and the Stop The Scandal Report has been put in front of Ministers and many other decision makers. It has now been written about in The Guardian which highlights the issue even further.
This is a huge achievement for the clients of Catching Lives, their voices are being heard because of the campaign4change work we undertake.
If you would like to know more please get in touch, we are keen to work in partnership with agencies and individuals who want the voices of their clients to be heard, and the more voices we have the louder we shout!
Thank you for your continuing support.
