Housing support staff are being forced to fill the gap left by social workers to assist homeless people and undertake tasks they may not be qualified for, a new report claims. According to ‘ Tackling homelessness and exclusion: Understanding complex lives ’ workers taking on primary responsibility for supporting homeless people with complex needs also feel isolated and out of their depth. The report, which was published today and took two years to write, also looked at some of the reasons behind homelessness and showed that almost half of people who slept rough had a history of substance abuse, institutional care and begging.

A bill of rights is a list of the most important rights of the citizens of a country. The purpose of these bills is to protect those rights against infringement. The term "bill of rights" originates from England , where it is referred to the Bill of Rights 1689 . Bills of rights may be entrenched or unentrenched . An entrenched bill of rights cannot be modified or repealed by a country's legislature through normal procedure, instead requiring a supermajority or referendum; often it is part of a country's constitution and therefore subject to special procedures applicable to constitutional amendments.
The Bill of Rights [ 1 ] is an Act of the Parliament of England passed on 16 December 1689. [ 2 ] It was a restatement in statutory form of the Declaration of Right presented by the Convention Parliament to William and Mary in March 1689 (or 1688 by Old Style dating ), inviting them to become joint sovereigns of England. It lays down limits on the powers of the crown and sets out the rights of Parliament and rules for freedom of speech in Parliament, the requirement to regular elections to Parliament and the right to petition the monarch without fear of retribution. It reestablished the liberty of Protestants to have arms for their defence within the rule of law, and condemned James II of England for "causing several good subjects being Protestants to be disarmed at the same time when papists were both armed and employed contrary to law". These ideas about rights reflected those of the political thinker John Locke and they quickly became popular in England.

Pacom communications technology was conceived to permit security data from remote locations to share the client’s corporate network as the means of transmission to a central monitoring point without compromising ‘core business’ data. Pacom supports industry standard network protocols. To provide data integrity a number of data security checking and verification measures are employed to ensure remote equipment has not been substituted or tampered with. Remote control and diagnostics via the network link eliminate considerable numbers of service visits and allow for rapid, enterprise-wide upgrading of operating software as new enhancements become available.
