I've had to evict a few people and make them homeless. Still it's always been their own fault.

Anybody seen the "Crisis" advert.

The actors are truly terrible.

Black woman with fear etched on her face as though Freddy Kruger is about to pounce.
Old geezer look's proper mad.

And the nutty charity wants 22 quid.

I worked for HARP for a time. GREAT GREAT charity and doing top work.
BUT the councils ought to be doing more, the NHS ought to be doing more, AND there are some really tragic persons homeless through no fault of their own making.
As with many things in this country the idea of treating all people equally has been allowed to take precedent over the need to treat people as to their individual circumstances, needs and risks.

Charities IMO are job clubs for the boys.

Save The Children has 14,000 employees with many being paid very nice salaries,they also have very swanky offices in trendy London where the lease is only 6 million smackers per year...it's all for charity though.

Some maybe, but not HARP. Swanky York Road? Check the jobs with them and it isn't much more than minimum wage for stressful, taxing and sometimes scary 1-1s with persons who have real issues.
You mate, MrsBlue don't have a clue do you?..............unless you read it in a tabloid under a big picture.

Can never understand why charities pay some of their staff ridiculous wages,in some cases 250k per year for virtually doing a day every week,look at Miliband on 400k with very generous expenses and pension.

Why must they have an expensive postcode?

Never heard of HARP so cannot comment on their practises.

The last thing they want to do is work any wear near the people they are trying to house

£150 per day part time isn't "much more than the minimum wage"......another position pays £8.54 An hour which is well above the minimum.

Perhaps Massimo mate,you don't have a clue.

You've not been attending Southend matches either but that hasn't stopped you being an expert?

Either way, glad to hear you're learning...

Ooops!

Like our football team, it's so much easier to snipe from the sides than actually offer support. Whatever they may be offering that hostel worker, it's one more job, one less person on benefits (less drain), and more tax in the bank for us (more gain), plus a step in the right direction for helping those that need it.

Great excuse to avoid giving if you just see every charity as a wolf in sheep's clothing right?

Happy Christmas.

Crisis require an "outreach coach"(whatever that is)salary 35,000 for 35 hours pw plus generous other benefits...£20 per hour ain't too rough.

Again, more sniping. So much easier than just helping.

So okay, I'll raise you even further. You and I Mrs Blue. New Year. Let's both give up a day and offer our help to whichever homeless charity you care to propose. No fees. No costs. We'll just register our names, offer our help and explore the opportunity from there.

I'm in. You in?

What are you talking about? I wouldn't even begin to think it's my thing either. One day Mrs B you might be glad of a little help from someone else.

I've heard of it, yes. Ever heard of Karma?

That salary is for a 40 hour week and the job is 16 hours at weekend. So is 60 quid a day, for cleaning rooms, bedding, toilets etc . Not great riches is it?
Can you please try harder to get some facts correct, there may be some people who read your gobbledygook gook and think you have a clue but time and again it is wind and bull.
