Humanising homelessness

Harry Tryphonos felt catalysed to write an article about homelessness after seeing the number of homeless people in the Hastings area and the south coast generally – and an awareness of the increasing reliance on charitable causes rather than social schemes to help people.

Regeneration from the bottom up

Hastings Green Party will be hosting a free talk on Thursday 25 October about how regeneration must be done in collaboration with local people, rather than being imposed from the top down. The talk, ‘Darning the Fabric: regeneration from the bottom up’, will be given by Jess Steele, a community activist and social entrepreneur based in Hastings. Jess is a founder director of the Heart of Hastings Community Land Trust, supporting community regeneration in the White Rock and Ore Valley areas.
