Support First Base today. A donation of £30 will fund a personal care package for a person sleeping rough.

Your donation will mean that each client will receive:

- A warm welcome

- Hot meals, including a delicious Christmas dinner

- A chance to shower, freshen up and get clean clothes

- Laundry facilities

- Medical treatment, optician and podiatrist

- Expert help with mental health and addiction problems

- Advice on housing, employment and benefits

Over the past year, 1,113 clients have made use of the services provided at First Base Day Centre, 1,089 of whom were rough sleepers. 498 clients have had a full needs assessment and engaged in a full programme of structured support. This has resulted in 222 people being helped in accommodation.

You can give the gift of a better future this Christmas. Thank you for your support.
