The request was successful.

Dear Leicester City Council,

On 27/09/2018 I was referred to Dawn Centre the emergency accommodation for homeless people following my call to Leicester city council and outreach. upon my arrival the lady took a photo from me and directed me to the corridor with many beds in it and told me you can sleep here comfortably .the first problem I came across was that they put smokers and nonsmokers people together that is was impossible to some to breathe , the toilet were open into the corridor and the air was such polluted and contaminated that I am still having chest pain and infected by virus people smoked cigarette midnight at the toilets and brought other people down . I lost 60 pound from my backpack that I don’t know whether is stolen or not as I didn’t see any CCTV around. The were lots of noses and sound midnight that was impossible to sleep (sorry I am not drug addict so I could maybe to sleep). I talked to one of the member in there I was told I need to contact Council. As I am still homeless I believed the Leicester City Council doing discrimination to provide hostel for people. So I need some explanation about procedure and policy which by that shows the minimum standard is observed in this centre .
Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,
