Helping ease back to school pressures for families

Autumn is one of our busiest times of the year and this year is no different!

Throughout the year, most of us, even the most prepared among us can face various pressures on our household finances. For families in real crisis, trapped in homelessness or destitute these pressures become unbearable and unmanageable. We work to try and prevent homelessness and avoid crisis wherever possible with the aim to keep families together and maintain independence.

Ahead of the new school year we were able to distribute over 500 items of new school uniform, coats, bags, lunch boxes and stationery to children across the city with the help of partner organisations.

Another challenge in autumn is ensuring those in temporary accommodation have the very best chance of returning to safe independent living before Christmas and winter sets in.

We are over the moon that in just the last few weeks, thanks to all the amazing donations of items from our great community we have been able to support another 11 adults and children into safe new independent homes in time for Christmas.

The hard work does not stop there. We always continue to support adults or families in independence for as long as needed to avoid further crisis or homelessness. Our community outreach and move on project is very much a person-centred process that ensures the people we work with are always at the heart of the decision-making process. This ensures they feel invested in their future and raises aspirations.
