Thank you for your support
For over 95 years, donations to the Christmas Appeal have been helping people take their next steps to a more secure future. Through the Vicar’s Relief Fund, you provide emergency financial support so that people in vulnerable situations can find – and keep – a safe place to live. In the heart of the capital, you help The Connection at St Martin’s provide specialist support to hundreds of vulnerable people as they recover from the experience of homelessness. And through our Frontline Network, you help provide resources for specialist workers and organisations across the UK, so people experiencing homelessness can have the best possible support.
All of this can make such a difference for someone working to move away from instability. Someone like Donna, who worked so hard to rebuild her life, and just needed a bit of support at the right time. Donations like yours funded a grant from our Vicar’s Relief Fund, so she could move into a house and continue taking her next steps.
“The relationship with my children now is probably better than it has been for about five years. I was showing my daughter the house on FaceTime and she said, ‘Mum, I’m so proud of you.’ And they’re the best words I’ve heard in many years. The only way is up for me now.” – Donna
Thank you so much for standing with us and with people experiencing homelessness as we head into 2022. You are helping many more people take their next step home.
