Weʼre raising £10,000 to Help homeless in Worcester to rent privately where deposits, rent are required I am homeless myself but want to help my homeless friends
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Since I became homeless, I have seen many homeless people in Worcester, Blackpool, and other areas. However, I feel they are not being supported enough where private landlords ,estate agents do not accept them due to having no money to pay for rent in advance, deposits, guarantor fees etc. I am looking to help not only myself but help as many homeless people in Worcester. There are 1400 empty homes in Worcester and around 175 homeless people who are not being supported by Councils due to rent arrears, misuse of drugs or other sociological problems. Homelessness is not a criminal offence, however from personal experience, WE are being treated as criminals due to asking for money in the street to survive and not always for drugs, alcohol or other misuses.
