Story

We urgently need your help

The homeless people Alabaré support are extremely vulnerable to Coronavirus; 75% of our homeless clients have underlying health issues* and many have no one else to turn to.

'Rough sleepers do not have access to the soap and water we are all using to help protect ourselves. They do not have the means to self-isolate. The vast majority are more susceptible to illness and many have complex underlying health problems. If the virus does spread, homeless people could be amongst the first to die.' Sue, Alabaré Homeless Service Manager

Coronavirus is already putting huge strains on Alabaré financially. Our charity's services are facing unprecedented challenges and are putting emergency procedures in to place.

Our fundraising events over the next 6 months have all had to be postponed and we are facing an immediate loss of at least £100,000 at a time when we desperately need that money to help save lives.

If we are unable to raise this money quickly, this virus could even threaten our charity's survival.

How your donation will make a difference

Your donation will directly support Alabaré's teams on the front line, working around the clock to support the homeless adults, young people, Veterans, care leavers and young parents with babies in our homes.

Your donation will help us get homeless people into our homes where we can support them if they fall ill. You can make sure every resident has a safe home, food and access to health care in this time of urgent need. You will also be providing essential support to vulnerable people coping with the mental challenges of this very difficult time.

We know that together we can save lives.
