Top homeless charity accused of helping to get rough sleepers arrested and deported
One of the UK’s leading homeless charities has been reported to the Charity Commission as evidence emerges it has been collaborating with the Home Office on unlawful patrols to arrest, detain, and deport rough sleepers.

St. Mungo’s has come under renewed scrutiny for allegedly reporting on the very people it is supposed to help. The Public Interest Law Unit (PILU) filed a complaint against it over its role in working with Home Office immigration, compliance and enforcement (ICE) officials in their “targeting and tackling” of rough sleepers.

It comes after the Home Office’s practice of rounding up and removing migrant rough sleepers was deemed unlawful by the High Court last December. The Home Office claimed they were exploiting EU treaty rights.

A internal document from St. Mungo’s seen by the Guardian claims the charity would pass on to the United Kingdom Border Agency the whereabouts of homeless people if they refused to comply with requests to return home within 12 weeks.

Doesn't surprise me.

I knew someone that worked for them years ago and said the people running it were just out for making money and didn't care one bit for the people they were supposed to be helping.

I’ve never heard the term “rough sleeper”, is that just a homeless person?
Forgive your enemies, it messes with their heads.

Thoughts create, mind them well.

 Quoting: Catseye


Yes, although it's reserved normally for people who sleep on the streets/outdoors as opposed to someone who sleeps on a friends sofa and has no fixed abode. Both are homeless.
