Story

Not Everyone is Dreaming of a White Christmas.

Donate to help us provide essential items to individuals currently experiencing homelessness.

Thousands of individuals sleep rough across England. Since 2010 the number of individuals effected by homelessness has dramatically increased and the number of rough sleepers has more than doubled since 2010. In the past 12 months 449 individuals have been reported to have died due to their experience of homelessness.These deaths were caused by reasons such as assault, illness, overdose, suicide and freezing conditions. Winter is a treacherous time for people sleeping rough and in the past three months a 20 percent spike has been reported in the number of rough sleepers currently in London.

In October 2017, Lifetimes charity launched two homeless projects, Woman 2 Woman & Men Matter 2. Woman 2 Woman is a project that aims to end period poverty for women currently effected by homelessness in the local area by providing care packs, that contain wipes, deodorant, socks, knickers, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste and a tooth brush to those in need. We believe that these items will allow homeless women to regain some freedom and restore some dignity, basic rights we often take for granted.

Men Matter 2 was born as a result of the high demand for these packs and the fact that there are more men currently experiencing homelessness than women. These packs contain similar items but the tampons/pads are replaced by a razor.

So far we have provided just under 200 women and over 400 men, across South London with care packs that have been extremely well received. We want these projects to run for as long as possible so we can reach as many individuals in need as we can. We therefore need your help to provide these essential items over the coming months, items that act as more than just toiletries, in many cases they increase confidence, dignity and freedom. We want people to know that not everyone is dreaming of a white Christmas!

A care pack costs around £5 and our aim is to raise enough for 200 packs, please give what you can and DONATE TODAY!

Join our campaign to keep the conversation going by following @LifetimesNews or go to our Facebook @W2WMM2 and help us raise awareness that homelessness is still homelessness even in summer.
