Goodwill Solutions Appeal for funds for Rough Sleeper Nightshelter
Public appeal to equip and furnish Northampton’s emergency nightshelter 10 Oct 2016 – 9 Jan 2017
Thank you for taking the time to visit our Just Giving page.
Goodwill Solutions is a community interest company, committed to tackling and preventing social exclusion and improving the lives of people who are homeless or unemployed.
This year, we have worked with Northampton Borough Council and around 30 other services and organisations to produce ‘Together we change lives’, an ambitious multi agency strategy for ending the need for people to sleep rough in Northampton.
As part of the plan, we are all working together to turn an empty, run-down Sports & Social Club into an emergency nightshelter, within just 8 weeks, by the end of November 2016.
This is a huge challenge and, here, at Goodwill Solutions, we are co-ordinating the collection of donations and raising money to purchase equipment and furnishings for the nightshelter.

This appeal has got off to a fantastic start with £100.00 donated on the first day the appeal has been live. Add that to the £260 we have already, we are well on the way towards the £2,000 we need to provide shelter, and to create a route off the streets, for the rough sleepers of Northampton
