Rod calls on council to offer a bed to homeless every night over winter months

In the last 12 months five homeless people have died in Cambridge.  That is five too many.  In a prosperous city like Cambridge, the fact that people are sleeping rough on our streets over the winter period is completely unacceptable.

We are calling on the city council to double its efforts on addressing the homeless crisis in our city by guaranteeing the offer of a bed for all rough sleepers every night over the winter period, not just on the nights when the severe weather emergency protocol is in use.
