This winter, homeless and vulnerable adults will face increased hardship. In response to these challenges, we have established our Essentials Fund, which helps the people we support to manage basic needs.
The fund will help people recovering from homelessness get back on their feet by providing simple items that can have a huge impact on someone’s life.
Recently, the fund helped to buy someone a mobile phone to stay in touch with loved ones, safety boots for a new job on site, and a wheelchair battery that would otherwise have left someone housebound. These aren’t exceptional asks, but lifelines. They help people regain independence as they recover from the trauma of homelessness.
