Graffiti and Tagging: An Attack on Services for Rough Sleepers

One of my posts from the last year that attracted quite a response was in September when I wrote about graffiti.  The post resulted in wider media coverage including an appearance on television news.

Today I walked past my office in London Road to discover that we have been the target of some mindless idiots who have tagged walls, the front door, even a window.

We will, of course, get it cleaned off, but it will cost.  The money we spend, which will run into several hundred Pounds, if not over £1,000, could have been used to provide services at First Base Day Centre.  In this instance, tagging is a direct attack on services being provided to rough sleepers.

I hope those responsible feel proud of what they have done.
