Thank you to everyone who donated to the Big Give this year


Big Give Challenge target reached!

The Big Give Challenge 2022 has now finished, and with the help of our wonderful partners and donors we are thrilled to say we raised £21,735, far surpassing our original target!

Thank you so much to everybody who donated between 29 November and 6 December. We know that times are tough, and really appreciate the generosity shown by people over the last week. Everything received will go directly to our economic social prescribing (ESP) programme, which is giving people the tools and support they need to leave homelessness behind for good.

ESP combines work and learning support with therapy and other wellbeing initiatives to help people to move on from homelessness. It addresses barriers that people face to education, training and employment, setting them up for long-term independence.

Debra Ives, Director of Operations, said:

“We have been blown away by the support we have received throughout the Big Give. The money raised is vital in ensuring we can provide the personalised assistance people need in order to move on from their experiences of homelessness and into new lives.”
