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 9th Dec - 6th Jan. We also want to provide a Christmas Lunch for our service users. We will provide a warm bed, hot meal, breakfast, support, shower facilities, use of a washing machine and a memorable Christmas.
Since 2010 estimates of rough sleeping show an increase of 134% and in 2018 homeless deaths rose by 22%, the equivalent of 2 people per day. Homelessness can happen to anyone at anytime in their life and we want to be there to help. Christmas can be a joyful time celebrated with family, friends and exchanging gifts, but imagine if you didn't have that. If you were waking up cold, homeless and alone on the streets. Help us to offer 3 additional beds, provide comfort, warmth and care.
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.
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 more permanent accommodation.
