Homelessness Outreach

Sarah Johnson

Minutes:

Sarah Johnson gave a short presentation which outlined her role as Assertive Outreach Worker, Wiltshire Council.

 

Points made included:

 

·         Sarah’s role involved reaching out, identifying and working with people who had slipped through or been failed by the system.

 

·         This involved meeting with rough sleepers frequently, building trust and ultimately helping them build their lives again.

 

·         A major piece of work carried out by Sarah was negotiating with services such as banks, the department for work and pensions and housing, to enable the homeless to have access the internet, access services, claim benefits and setting up their own bank accounts without having a permanent address or formal ID.

 

·         It was noted that the number of homeless people throughout Wiltshire known to services stood at 35, although they were aware that this number was likely an underestimate and work was being done to try and identify and find those unknown to the service.

 

The Chairman thanked Sarah Johnson for her presentation and the good work that she was carrying out across Wiltshire.

79.

Julia's House

Jan Burns

Minutes:

Jan Burns – Julia’s House gave a short presentation that highlighted the work carried out at the Julia’s House childrens hospice in Devizes.

 

Points made included:

 

·         That Julia’s House was not a typical children’s hospice. It provided practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, providing frequent and regular support in their own homes.

 

·         The Julia’s House childrens hospice in Devizes, was somewhere children could come and play in an environment tailored specifically for them, and a hub for our community nurses to work from.

·         The theme for the building and garden was Wiltshire’s Neolithic heritage, with fun interpretations of white horses, stone monuments and – in a creative extension of the theme – cave drawings interpreted by local children’s artist Hannah Kate Sackett.

·         Hi-tech features included a cinema within the main activity room, interactive projection systems that allow play via vision and sound and movement-activated sound boxes in the garden, which trigger birdsong and other relaxing nature sounds.

·         The work has been carried out by Wates Construction.

The Chairman thanked Jan Burns for her presentation and the excellent being carried out Julia’s House.

 

80.

Clean Up Wilts & Community Engagement Manager Update

Minutes:

Marc Read outlined the Wiltshire Council’s Clean Up Wilts campaign.

 

Points made included:

 

·         This year phase two of the county-wide Clean-Up Wilts campaign would be implemented.

 

·         The campaign, which was launched last October, focused on targeting fly-tipping across the county as its first phase.

 

·         This year the campaign focused on litter from food-on-the-go, chewing gum and cigarette butts and community litter picks as part of supporting the national Great British Spring Clean, which takes place on the weekend of 2 to 4 March (2018).

 

·         Over the last two years – communities across Wiltshire had participated in the litter picks and more than 30 tonnes of litter had been collected.

 

·         As a result of this participation, Wiltshire Council had been shortlisted as a finalist in the Keep Britain Tidy Network Awards – Local Authority Award category. The shortlisting was based on the evidence of the strong community spirit that prevails in Wiltshire, which was clearly demonstrated last year on the weekend of the 2017 Great British Spring Clean (Friday 3 to Sunday 5 March).

 

·         More than 3,200 volunteers took part in litter picks across the county, giving up their time to help make their communities a better place to live. In all, 152 litter picks took place throughout the county during the weekend, and the volunteers collected 3,025 bags of rubbish, with 18.15 tonnes collected in total.

 

·         The award winner would be announced on 8 February. Just being a finalist was recognition of what makes Wiltshire unique. It would be great if this year’s Great British Spring Clean event could be another success.

 

·         It would of course be much better if people didn’t drop litter in the first place and that we didn’t have to spend more than £2.5 million each year collecting this rubbish. Wiltshire is a beautiful county and we want to keep it that way.

 

 

Community Engagement Manager Update

 

·         Family Learning Festival – That the festival held last year had been a great success, with plans to hold a bigger one during 2018.

 

·         Wellington Academy Post-Valentine Lunch – That the lunch would be held on Thursday 22 February at the Bridge Centre, Wellington Academy.

 

·         Nepalese Community – That a representative from the Nepalese community had been invited to speak at the next Area Board meeting.

 

The Chairman thanked Marc Read for his update.
