December is well and truly here now, and with the run up to Christmas we are ready to open our Festive Shelter beds! We are really pleased with the donations we have received, and although we have not yet reached our target, we will not let that stop us helping those most in need.
In the last 6 years Falcon Support Services have housed 329 individual people and increased our bed spaces by 213%. With increasing needs, we hope to keep expanding our accommodation and community services so vulnerable people can receive the correct support and housing.
If you are aware of anyone rough sleeping, please refer them to Charnwood Borough Council or The Bridge to access our #festiveshelter beds. You can also contact Streetlink on 0300 5000914 to report a rough sleeper. This information is then sent to the Local Authority who will try and make contact with the person and offer assistance. We will endeavour to help as many people as we can. Read Christopher's story to find out the difference we make.
In addition we have launch our Shoe Box Appeal requesting donations of goods so we can provide Christmas presents to our service users. If you are able to help, or know of anyone else who may be able to, please feel free to share the information.
Thanks again, and we hope you have a good Christmas
