With doing volunteering with the #HealthNow with Crisis I did learn a bit about it. And for me, basically, if they can get everyone in a time of crisis like this with the Covid – and they can basically pull out all the stops and make sure that people have got a roof over their head – then it just absolutely baffles me to think that they wouldn’t continue to do that, or that they couldn’t have done it before, or they can’t do it again.
It’s a brilliant idea. It just shows, I don’t know, it just shows that people don’t actually need to be out on the streets, or certainly not so many anyway. And it’s just, if anything, it’s quite pitiful that it’s took this pandemic right now, all these people are so poorly, to them to take this into consideration and do something about it in the first place. And really really, it confuses me the mindset that you would start something like that and then potentially stop it, or definitely stop it. I really can’t get my head around it. I find it very confusing.
And I don’t know what the thought process is. I really don’t know to say apart from that because if something works, and you find a solution to something, or part of a solution to something, then go with it, do it. Its people’s lives you’re talking about you know.
And to think that you could be housed and then it’s took away from you, especially at this time of year, there’s a big thing about it being cold and dark in winter. I can feel the despair inside even when I talk about it and think about it. It’s just terrible, it really is.
And as I said I don’t really know what else to say apart from that. I’ve been looking into recently, and I’ve learned bits and I know that it was working. And I’ve spoken to people in various meetings for different things where people are being housed in their area and were doing really well and settling in.
So, yeah, I’m at a loss to be perfectly honest, that’s all I can say.
