In October I'm running the Oxford Half to raise money for Gatehouse, a charity that helps homeless people in Oxford.
Homelessness has been on the rise in Oxford (and across the country) for a number of years, and charities like The Gatehouse do invaluable work to give support to some of the most vulnerable members of our society who have been failed by the housing crisis and austerity policies.
The team at Gatehouse provide regular drop-in sessions for homeless people in Oxford. Additionally to warmth and shelter, people attending the drop-in sessions can receive food, drink, as well as toiletries and other items they may need.
The Gatehouse also offer support and advice services, run workshops and activities to improve skills and confidence and operate an outreach team on the streets of Oxford.
Please give what you can to support the work The Gatehouse does to help out people in need.
