How you’ll make a difference

Last year, our outreach teams worked with 11,453 people who were sleeping on the streets. We also provided specialist healthcare, training and employment teams dedicated to helping people recover from their experiences and really turn their lives around for good. . Our aim is help every person we meet to recover and rebuild their lives.

The money you raise could help provide counselling to 2 people affected by homelessness, to support their mental health and begin their recovery journey.
