By coincidence my next meeting was a presentation to members of #Newham Homelessness Action Group on the new @NewhamLondon  Homelessness & Rough Sleeping Strategy. The room was overflowing & there was a robust but constructive Q&A. @CllrShaban @NewhamSue Co-Chaired with Tony Lewis #OurDay #CouncilsCan
