Out of the Doorways campaign is based on self-help and alternative shelters Homeless Front UK, who featured in Issue 15, are practising what they preach and have launched their Out of the Doorways campaign. The campaign, which officially began 11th December at St Pancras Church Hall, is based on an internationally successful model of self-help, and the formation of alternative shelters for those on the streets. Jack Tafari, of Homeless Front UK, told The Pavement: "There are 10 fewer people sleeping in the gateway on Surrey Street, and in various and assorted doorways in Westminster today, because of the policy and action of the Homeless Front's current Out of the Doorways campaign. "Of the 11 homeless people that the Homeless Front UK has housed since its formation, 10 are currently housed at our current HQ or have transitioned on to better circumstances. Only one individual was unable to live up to the five basic rules of our residence agreement and is currently living back on the street." Asked to explain the basic premise of Homeless Front UK (HFUK), Tafari said that it is about "housing former rough sleepers without the help of any government funding whatsoever and without burdening the British taxpayer. Because one of the bases on which we do not discriminate is that of nationality, HFUK is able to provide shelter for foreign nationals who do not meet the criteria of many of the night shelters and hostels." This new organisation is currently applying for charitable status and has begun to secure funding for its activity.
