No one should wake up homeless and alone on the streets over Christmas. Falcon Support Services want to provide 3 emergency beds to those that are homeless in Leicestershire over the festive period from 1st Dec - 4th Jan.

Challenge

Homelessness is on the increase nationally and is often the end result of underlying support issues. It is something that can happen to anyone at anytime in their life. Christmas can be a joyful time celebrated with family, friends and exchanging gifts. Imagine if you didn't have that. If you were waking up cold, homeless and alone on the streets. The festive period is often the hardest time and we want to be the ones making that difference.

Solution

We will provide support and accommodation, taking people from crisis point off the streets and into safe accommodation. We will provide a Christmas lunch and gift so they feel valued and part of a community and can wake up knowing they can celebrate Christmas with us, and that someone cares.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide supported accommodation to 3 people per night, allowing them to access advice, increase health and well-being and provide a sense of community over the festive period. Support will be given to assist people access further accommodation once having left the centre.
