Being a Grassroots Awareness Campaign means that it isn’t someone at the top who dictates or leads on their own – it means it’s a team effort! I want you to show everyone that you support raising awareness of homelessness.

THIS is Jess Anderson, a 20 year old Social Work BSc Honours student at the University of Gloucestershire (Worcester won against Glous. in Varsity AGAIN this year!). Today, she publicly declared that she supports #HugosEarthquake because:
“Individuals living on the street and do not have a home, need support for another chance at life! #Bethechangeyouwishtoseeintheworld”
Campaign supporter and advocate, Jess Anderson, posted her ‘I Support’ via #ImPartOfTheEarthquake on Facebook.

Thanks as ever for supporting the campaign in its 8th month!!!
#HugosEarthquake is proudly featured on the front page of the Worcester Observer this week (27th July 2016) speaking about the new homeless housing project in the City. Also mentioned is how I have become a ‘leading Worcester homelessness campaigner’ according to the media – a status I am most proud of.
After being contacted by the Editor, I published my response to the new housing scheme on this blog (EXCLUSIVE: My response to new youth homeless project in Worcester) and was printed in the Newspaper.
As summer approaches and the temperature hits record highs, #HugosEarthquake launches its very own ‘Somewhere in Summer’ campaign to help raise awareness of those who suffer on the streets in heat.
There is often much coverage about the plight of homeless people during winter, and calls for support during those difficult months – but it’s still difficult during sunny weather too. ‘Somewhere in Summer’ aims to bring homelessness to the front of people’s minds and address the horrible exclusion that the homeless face.
It’s a fact that people are made homeless every day and society in general seems to take notice mostly during winter – but homeless people are always ‘bedding down’ Somewhere in Summer.
SUPPORT ‘Somewhere in Summer’ by signing this petition to give to people whose job it is to have responsibility for the homeless:
Homelessness is something that can happen year round, and #HugosEarthquake aims to breakdown the stigma attached to homelessness, at any time of the year. Please support this important campaign as we reach the peak of the summer season.
Thank you for supporting #SomewhereInSummer.

Well it’s been ages since I wrote on here! #HugosEarthquake has been changing a lot in line with job and time demands. I will be out on the NCS programme over this month and August and therefore cannot commit as much time as I used to to the homeless awareness campaign.
This being said, I am using the chances I get to talk to young people to help educate them on the realities of homelessness and trying to change perceptions. I want to hear from you though… Have you been through homelessness or heard others’ experiences? Please do share them (anonymous submissions welcomed) and let’s collate a diary of stories and help grow the changing perceptions of homelessness in society.
I will keep you updated as and when but please do keep the spirit of #HugosEarthquake alive.
Take care and have a good summer!
P.S Please do follow the campaign on Facebook and Twitter and drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
