There is nationwide concern that rough sleepers - taken safely off the streets at the start of the lockdown in March - are once again at risk as winter approaches and the pandemic is still all around.  Most local authorities had no option but to place them in hotel accommodation which they then had to vacate.  But in St Albans a joint project between local charities and the District Council made sure all local rough sleepers were offered secure homes where they can remain into the future.  Two of those involved in the project (Lucy Gaygasuz from Open Door and Cllr Jacqui Taylor from SADC) explain to Rob Pearman (Local Life) how the project has succeeded and what happens next as we move into the winter.  It's a great story - and a rare 'positive' to come out of Covid!
