This year is our 30th Anniversary of supporting rough sleepers and people experiencing homelessness. As you might imagine we are also already seeing new people affected by the pandemic who have lost their jobs or are on a very low income, those who have suffered bereavements, abuse in the home or trauma because of the mental and physical effects.

Looking back on last year none of us could have ever imagined the impact it would have had on our lives, those of our friends and families, our freedoms and the people we support on our Cities streets.

As we reflect on this year we’re reminded of the resilience of those we support and the generosity and community spirit of our supporters and volunteers. Even though all the organised fundraising events were cancelled and corporate support was dramatically reduced you’ve held us up and inspired us with your compassionate support during an extremely critical and difficult year.  And in spite of all the challenges we have been able to offer some outstanding and vital crisis support and also long term support for rough sleepers and people experiencing homelessness to help people off the streets and into homes of their own.

We hope you will continue to support us, sign up for our mailshots and consider ways that you can support us to make this an anniversary that creates meaningful and long lasting positive changes for years to come.

We’ve come up with 30 Ideas for 30 years, there’s something in here for everyone; volunteering, fundraising ideas, donations and corporate support. We would also love to hear and celebrate any other ideas you may have.

Throughout this year we will be celebrating all the many ways you support us; on our website and social media, we know we couldn't transform lives without your generous and thoughtful support and we can only continue to do this together. Please email [email protected] if you would like to get involved we will be blessed to support you in any way we can and can't wait to hear your ideas.
