Help us ensure that no Londoner needs to return to sleeping rough when the COVID-19 pandemic eases.

Support our ‘No return to the streets ’ Emergency Appeal now.

In addition to the 7000+ homeless people we support, since the COVID-19 crisis began, we’ve been at the forefront of a collective effort to get people who are sleeping rough off the streets of London and into safe, emergency accommodation. Working with central government, the Greater London Authority, councils and other charities, and fuelled by donations from supporters like you, we’ve been able to keep more than 500 of the capital’s rough sleepers safe during the pandemic.  Now, we face an urgent challenge and unique opportunity.  With your help, we can ensure everyone currently housed in hotels and other emergency accommodation is supported into long-term specialist hostels or independent accommodation. Thousands could be prevented from returning to the streets.

This means supporting people to access housing and benefits, as well as meeting their longer term health needs such as therapeutic support to address the loneliness and declining mental health caused by isolation during the pandemic, together with skills and employability support, so they can break the cycle of homelessness and leave the streets behind for good.

With your help, we will be able to provide this crucial support now to ensure people will never have to return to the streets.

As we approach World Homeless Day on 10 October 2020, your support is #nevermoreneeded

We urgently need your support for the following:

  • £15 could pay for transport costs to move a homeless person to independent accommodation
  • £30 could pay for a fast-track proof of ID card, essential for a homeless person to access support and housing
  • £50 could pay for a mobile phone to allow a homeless person to stay in touch with their support worker
  • £80 could pay for a pack of essentials including toiletries, clothing, mobile phone and ID for a person who has been sleeping rough
  • £100 could pay for six months of 1-2-1 employability support for a homeless person
  • £200 could pay for psychotherapy support  for a homeless person facing multiple disadvantage
  • £300 could pay for a move-in pack, including bedding, crockery and furniture for a homeless person moving into independent accommodation
