Spring is all about new life and things starting afresh – like chicks, lambs and flowers in bloom.
But, if you’ve been homeless the chances are you’ve not had the best start in life. So many of the rough sleepers who use The Connection’s day services have experienced multiple trauma. This can include growing up in care with no support from loved ones, being asked to leave the family home, being in abusive relationships, deteriorating mental health and terms in prison.
With the right support people can recover from homelessness, so this Easter why not give someone homeless a fresh start, and the hope of a better life.
£5 can provide a hot nutritious meal and clean clothes. These are essential for well- being and encourage rough sleepers to access our services.
£25 can provide an in-depth assessment to understand how we can help someone and plan next steps
£100 can provide several nights’ stay in our emergency centre which is a stepping stone to longer term housing
