Over 60% of people experiencing homelessness struggle with addiction. More than half have poor mental health too.

Asking for help and breaking addictions is hard, so we are asking you to give up something you enjoy, just for one month, to stand in solidarity with the homeless community.

We know giving up chocolate or social media is worlds apart from the struggles faced by people we support at Happy Days but it is a symbolic act of togetherness and a great way to fundraise for our charity.

Happy Days supports and empowers people who are homeless or in crisis to live independent and purposeful lives by helping them to access the advice and services they need to bring about sustainable change. We do this by providing a wide range of services including an engagement service which connects people with the specific support they need. We listen to each person individually and create a plan specifically designed to help that person; we gain trust and build real relationships in order to help people. Happy Days meets the growing demands of those struggling to cope with the cost of living crisis by operating a broad range of services that tackle homelessness and food poverty. These include The Winter Shelter, Halifax Community Supermarket and The Community Café at The Gathering Place. For single adults who are homeless, the charity operates supported accommodation and services that are designed to help residents move on and live independently. This may include support to overcome addiction, skills to sustain employment and tenancy and specialist input for mental health and trauma. Our vision is to be a leading and highly valued provider of services to people who are homeless or in crisis.
