Today (4 May) is Firefighters Memorial Day, when we pay tribute to, and remember, those who have died or been injured whilst serving their communities.
It is also ‘International Firefighters Day’ - commemorating the dedication and sacrifices of firefighters everywhere.
Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to make this happen.
We did it! The Government have just put down the amendment to repeal the Vagrancy Act - the law that criminalises rough sleeping. This took 4yrs. Started with Oxford students. Countless Bills, Qs events and debates. I can’t quite believe we’ve got there. Thanks to all 😊 👏
We will continue to work with partners up and down the country to help people affected by homelessness access the support services that will enable them to make meaningful changes to their lives.
