Prince William will launch an ambitious plan on Monday aimed at ending homelessness in the UK.
Prince William, heir to the British crown, launched a plan on Monday aimed at ending homelessness in the United Kingdom. Called Homewards, the five-year plan aims to “prove that an end to homelessness is possible,” Prince William and his wife Kate’s Royal Foundation announced in a press release.
“This is a difficult task, but I am confident that by working together we can ensure that homelessness is rare, brief and never repeated,” eldest son Charles said in a statement from the King.
It’s a major new project for the Prince of Wales, who in 2020 has introduced the Earthshot Awards, created to distinguish pro-environmental innovation, a monarchy rocked by numerous scandals, of particular interest at the moment. Prove its usefulness to British society.
Create a model
William, 41, is set to perform at six venues starting in London on Monday and Tuesday. Led by the Prince and Princess of Wales’ Royal Foundation, the project relies on local partners – individuals, companies, organizations – who will work together to deliver a local program designed around “local needs and local expertise”. The press release said.
One of the axes aims to open houses on a larger scale. The idea is to create a model that can be adopted elsewhere in the UK and overseas. According to the press release, there are more than 300,000 people in the United Kingdom, half of whom are children, “sofa surfing,” sleeping on the streets, living in their cars, hotels or other temporary shelters.
