The difference your fundraising will make Each day across all 32 London boroughs, our staff work with individuals to tackle the underlying causes of homelessness, such as poor mental health or drug and alcohol dependency. With 40 years of expertise and a London-wide reach, we make a difference to more than 10,000 lives every year. Often that means being there for people at a critical time – whether to prevent their eviction or help them off the street; to get them into drug or alcohol treatment or support them with their mental health; or to help them find a job and a flat so that they can take the final steps to living on their own. Perhaps most important of all, your fundraising will help restore hope to people who might otherwise feel forgotten, left behind or written off, providing crucial footholds in their recovery journey from which they can go on to build independent and fulfilling lives.
