Homeless charity buys tents to help the homeless

It was suggested to us by one of our agents that we might consider donating a sum of money to one of the homeless charities, that are looking at purchasing some end of season tents from a high street store.  We offered them £150 as the tents they were looking at were £5 each, this will allow them to help a lot of people to stay dry and hopefully a bit warmer over the coming autumn and winter seasons.

Homeless man who was sofa surfing now back onto the streets

We were approached by our agent asking for help for a man she has been assisting.  He had been sofa surfing with his two friends, a husband and wife.  Sadly the husband has now died and the fact that they were all sofa surfing with friends has now been detected and this is not allowed to continue as it goes against the rules of their friend's tenancy..  Her client has been forced to leave and back on to the streets, but as he has nowhere to go she asked for enough money to be able to buy him tent.  We sent across £50 to cover the cost of a tent she'd seen on offer at a local store.  Hopefully this will provide him with some shelter at least.

A temporary roof over their heads!

We were contacted today about two men, one in a wheelchair.  They are both street homeless, with absolutely no where to go.  They are being supported to try to achieve permanent accommodation, but that is going to take time unfortunately.  We sent across £140, which went towards buying them each a small tent, ground mat and sleeping bag.  Hopefully with these they will at least stay dry and warm until something more permanent can be found for them.
