Two Peterborough businessmen who help first time buyers and home movers are playing their part in supporting the city’s rough sleepers.

Mortgage and protection advisers Lee Gathercole and Neezam Romjon set up Rebus more than two years ago with the aim of helping people move onto the property ladder.

And for the past six months the school friends turned entrepreneurs have been donating £15 to the Safer off the Streets partnership every time they help one of their clients into a home or switch their current mortgage to a new deal.

The multi-agency partnership, which launched in 2018, is made up of voluntary, religious and community organisations, including Peterborough City Council. It offers wide-ranging support to rough sleepers, in particular through the Garden House in the Cathedral Precincts where they can be aided into long-term accommodation.

The Garden House is run by Light Project Peterborough and guests there can receive much-needed support from housing officers, GPs, drug and alcohol specialists, a chiropodist, hairdressers and other professionals.
