Ruth Cooke CEO Midland Heart comments on the 2016 Budget

Ruth Cooke Responding to yesterday’s budget, Ruth Cooke CEO Midland Heart said:

“We welcome the chancellor’s announcement for further investment in services that prevent homelessness and rough sleeping.  As providers of both homeless and preventative services we work with individuals every day who experience  homelessness and see the very real difference these vital services make to the lives of the most vulnerable.

“Together with our partners we strive for greater recognition of the genuine benefits housing and care organisations can bring in the provision of affordable housing choices, the delivery of essential care and support services and through new initiatives that integrate health and social care – all of which  aim to support individuals to live with dignity and independence.”
