Ever heard of cuckooing? - Sadly it doesn't have anything to do with nature.

Cuckooing is when drug dealers take over the home belonging to a vulnerable person to widen their criminal network.

Exploitation of vulnerable people is a mounting concern for frontline accommodation services like Homeless Oxfordshire.
During this week we are working closely with Thames Valley Police and Oxford City Council, speaking to vulnerable tenants to support and safeguard them, identify any exploitation concerns, and provide the necessary interventions to prevent them from coming to harm.

If you think someone is being exploited common warning signs of exploitation include regular visitors, late night disturbances and disorder, physical injuries, and drug activity.
Reports can be made to Thames Valley Police by calling 101 (non-emergency) or 999 in an emergency.

🏡 In Oxford the average house price of £491,900 is around 16 times the average yearly household income of £29,400.

No wonder it's so hard for homeless people to get back on track.

"Imagine living with no more than a sleeping bag and a bag of clothes, cold, hungry and scared.
From my own experience of living on the street, you feel that you are not living, only existing!"

#HomelessNotHopeless

People who become homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless not only have to deal with the hardships that come with it, but they can also become victims of exploitation.

Not having access to a stable income or able to rely on financial support from family and friends means that criminal activity – such as dealing drugs or low level fraud – could be an attractive option as a means of getting by.

At Homeless Oxfordshire we are working tirelessly to protect and safeguard our residents from being targeted by gangs and exploiters who prey on vulnerable people.
