Needles and smashed cans with smack residue everywhere. Blood and hair dye. Stolen products. TVs, phones, even a fucking shower head taken off the walls. It’s absolute fucking insanity. I get they need somewhere to go, but they don’t treat the places with any respect was about to say that really sucks for them. When cleaning they’re going to have to be VERY careful not to get pricked by needles in hidden places, like under the bed, in the mattress, stuffed in the garbage bags, and whatnot. It’s easy to assume that, but London already did it earlier in the pandemic. I live just down the road from a hotel that was part of it back in the Spring
Apart from a notable uptick in drug dealers hanging about it’s been much more successful than you might expect. The hotel signed up to do it again which, to be honest, I didn’t expect, I thought it would be trashed…Folks asking “then what” – while people are housed there is half a chance for other support services to get to them, e.g Crisis (I volunteer with them) are planning to run in-hotel services for things like counseling, it skills and citizens advice type stuff. It’s tiny incremental stuff, but every little helps.
