Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
Preventing Homelessness and ensuring that those that are in this unfortunate situation are cared for, as best as possible, is everybody's business. This is particularly so in a climate where report after report has confirmed that the situation is at crisis point (you just have to walk in your town centres to see this is the case) due to a lack of funding, austerity and successive governments not addressing or pledging the support required by charities that are struggling to help.
This is where I and the charities that I am supporting need your help through a donation, however large or small, to address the disadvantage that the homeless face on a day to day and night to night basis.
I believe that no one chooses to be homeless and it is the cards that they have been dealt with, in life, which results in this. A lack of role models, mental health, relationship break-ups, domestic abuse, prison leavers, war veterans, care leavers, newly recognised refugees, those on low incomes or benefits. The trigger can be any or a combination of these factors.
My contribution to this is notably small. On 10 October 2019, I will swap my suite for a sleeping bag and the comfort of my bed to sleep out for the night to experience a little of that which the homeless experience every night on the streets. However, with your contribution to raise vital funds we will collectively help the incredible hard work of Emmanuel House, The Friary, Notts County Football in the Community and CEO Sleepout UK.
Your donation will help these charities in their work to ensure that there is a mechanism to reach out. To provide food, shelter, health and social care, education, advocacy and to ensure that homelessness prevention is properly embedded in Government, their agencies and society.
Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
