The Minister for the Constitution, Chris Skidmore MP, visited BHT’s First Base Day Centre as part of his Every Vote Matters tour, to hear first hand about the experiences homeless people have faced when voting or registering to vote.
The Minister later visited Blind Veterans UK and Brighton & Hove Speakout. He heard from all three charities about how they raised awareness of participation in the democratic process for the General Election 2017 and what support they provided to residents and clients.
BHT, Blind Veterans UK and Brighton and Hove Speakout are fantastic organisations that ensure people experiencing homelessness and those with disabilities feel confident, empowered and remain an active part of their society.
