How a homeless 'charity' has blocked payments to a homeless hero! Shame on 'Safer Streets'-From the blog Pride's Purge
Homeless charity blocks money donated by the public to homeless hero
Remember the story a couple of months ago about a homeless man – Mark Collins – who helped a desperate young woman when she was stranded in Euston overnight after missing the last train home:
Homeless man steps in to help girl left stranded after missing her train home
It was a such a touching story, thousands of people donated money –
£13,000 to be exact
– to help Mark get back on his feet.
But amazingly, Mark
still hasn’t seen any of the money
Mainly because a homeless charity working in the area –
– recommended the money should be withheld from Mark and given to a homeless charity like themselves instead. On the basis that:
“Giving large amounts of money directly to someone with support needs could have been harmful”.
Safer Streets is a project run by a charity called
Change, Grow, Live.
Which until recently was called Crime Reduction Initiatives. Whose fat cat CEO
an eye-watering £180,000 a year.
So to be fair, it’s no surprise the charity is desperate for cash.
Having to pay out that kind of money to their directors every year.
