As much of our current work is in the residential sector we felt it was appropriate to make a donation to regional charity Julian House to support their Exeter Assertive Homeless Outreach programme in lieu of sending greeting cards at Christmas.
Julian House are delivering a programme of outreach to rough sleepers and people leading street-based lifestyles across Exeter, East Devon and Teignbridge. It therefore seemed fitting that some of our income generated through delivering quality private and affordable housing developments was shared with those at the other end of the housing ladder.
Ben Bradshaw told the Express and Echo:
"Congratulations to Exeter City Council on cutting rough sleeping by a third in the last twelve months, when the figures nationally over the same period have doubled.
This has been achieved through a concerted effort, working closely with local homelessness and other organisations. The provision of a night shelter over the winter months should help further."
