It is not only people experiencing homelessness who are affected by the colder weather. A redundancy, benefit change or delay or even an unexpected bill can be devastating for anyone who is struggling to make ends meet. The freezing temperatures bring added pressure and many may be forced to choose between heating or eating.
Our winter appeal aims to help local residents who are facing a difficult and stressful time this winter. Donations of any size are welcome. As little as £5 can help feed a local child, provide a warm meal to a resident experiencing homelessness, help an elderly neighbour stay warm this winter or go towards buying a family in crisis an essential appliance such as a washing machine or child’s bed. If you receive the Winter Fuel Allowance and don’t need it to pay your own bills, our Winter Appeal is a great way to help someone else.Click here
