We’re reaching the end of a year which, for many, will have been a challenging one. In London, we’ve seen a 21% increase in homelessness, and 78% of our frontline workers across the UK have seen demand for their service increase over the last year. Tens of thousands of people face a winter with no home to go to, or are at risk of losing the one they have.
Our grants help people secure homes by covering costs such as a rental deposit. We fund organisations like The Connection at St Martin’s in central London and others right across the UK, working in local communities to support people facing homelessness. But we need your help.
Be part of our BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal and your gift could help provide a grant. Give today and help someone secure or keep a safe home this winter.
