Giselle’s best gift ever

Giselle was forced to leave home due to family issues. Her Best Gift Ever this Christmas would be to gain a qualification.

When Giselle came to Evolve she had no education and nowhere to go. With the support of our Work + Learning team, she is now completing her education and hopes to one day start her own business.

Evolve provide people like Giselle not only with accommodation but with support with gaining skills and qualifications, and help in gaining employment. With donations like yours we can continue to help people like Giselle get the vital assistance they need to move on into independence.

With your donations we can continue to provide services such as our Health + Wellbeing and Work + Learning programmes to help other homeless people like Giselle to regain their lives and move on into independence. Your donations are vital in filling the gap between government funding and providing a full holistic service to help enable people to break out of the cycle of homelessness and become independent.

Donating via JustGiving means we can also claim the GiftAid for your donation, or if you would like to buy a homeless person a Christmas gift, please visit here for gift ideas.
