With your help, we support frontline workers across the UK and through this we work towards ensuring that everyone experiencing homelessness can secure, and keep, a safe place to live.
You help people in vulnerable situations to find and keep a home. With the Vicar’s Relief Fund, you provide the emergency financial help that’s needed to secure somewhere to live. These small grants alleviate worry and stress and can transform a person’s circumstances within a matter of days.
You help hundreds of people to recover from homelessness. By supporting The Connection at St Martin’s, you provide vital support through its day centre and accommodation for people who are rough sleeping in the capital. You connect people with skilled staff who understand the complexity of their situation and who listen, then help. Step by step, these workers provide long-term, tailored support that enables someone to regain their health, a home and their independence.
And you ensure that the best quality support is always on offer. Through our Frontline Network, you support specialist workers and organisations working in homelessness across the UK. You allow them to access new funding, share expertise and to find new and innovative ways of providing meaningful support for people experiencing homelessness. You also help them to amplify their voices, so their expertise is considered at a national level and in all￼ policy decisions about housing and homelessness.
We are a homelessness charity helping people experiencing homelessness both directly and indirectly. What we need, to make a real difference, is investment in innovative approaches that target root causes of homelessness. We have divided these into three categories: emerging, promising and evidence-based practice.
We are raising £5,450,000 over the next four years for this exciting programme. Our target for year one is £550,000, starting with investing in mental health services for people facing homelessness. We would be delighted to discuss this programme further. Please contact our Fundraising Development Manager Faye at [email protected] for more information, or read more about this here.
We have brought together a review of all our programmes in one place, so that you can see all the ways you supported people experiencing homelessness in 2021-2022. To read our Year in Review report, click here.
