Why this petition matters

Started by Russell Brand

I've been involved with SHOC for a number of years, they are a homeless drop in and assistance facility in Slough, I wrote about them in my book Recovery. 

With the gut wrenching irony that only 2018 can provide SHOC themselves are now being made homeless by Slough council, meaning the vulnerable clients that depend on them will be in even more trouble.

But we can fight back on their behalf with the Recovery Movement.

Many of the rough sleepers swept out of Windsor as result of Councillor Simon Dudley's proposed economic cleanse in preparation of Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle will need SHOC and other local facilities to care for them.

As a wedding present for Harry and Meghan and as a rebuke to the low frequency conduct of Councillor Dudley and any who would further victimise the vulnerable, we are asking that Slough Council agree to a "change of use" for a building in the town that will enable SHOC to have a new home.

It will cost them nothing but the ink in the pen to commit to a 'change of use' for this building - you know how easy it is to do that - councils have to do it every time they turn a local shop into a supermarket chain express store.

If you think this would be a great gift for the Royal Couple, a beautiful way to celebrate their love SIGN THIS PETITION.

This is the perfect way to ensure that love and community trump selfishness and profit as well as being the perfect wedding present for a cool couple. Let's face it, what else can we give them? They must have enough toasters.

Sign the wedding card to show your support and to get SHOC and Slough's homeless a permanent home.

And stay tuned for more opportunities to join the Recovery Movement.
