Story

This year, hundreds of local people in Oxford will wake up homeless on Christmas Day. For them, Christmas is not a time of magic and celebration. It's just another day when they will wake up on the streets or in unsafe accommodation.

But your support for Aspire and Oxford Homeless Pathways will transform Christmas for homeless people.

Clare's story: "It's so hard being homeless at Christmas. One of the hardest things was not having our special possessions, like my two sons' homemade Christmas decorations. I felt so much failure as a parent and fear for our future. 

But this year, thanks to charities like Aspire and Oxford Homeless Pathways, I'm so excited about Christmas in my own home."

A gift of £10 could provide a homeless person coming in off the street with an essential welfare pack, including toothpaste and soap

A gift of £20 could provide an IT course for 10 homeless people

A gift of £45 could provide intensive employment support

Give the Gift of Hope this Christmas. Thank you.
