The number of people sleeping rough in England on any one night has doubled since 2010 and increased by 30% in the last year, with an estimated 3,569 people now sleeping on the streets across England, according to new government figures. 

For a homeless person, getting a secure roof over their head is a crucial first step –finding somewhere that is safe, dry and warm. However, to tackle homelessness effectively it is not sufficient simply to put a roof over someone’s head, and their work does not stop there. They also offer support on the journey from homelessness to independent living, providing them with a framework to get their life back on track.

Our director Sandra, is challenging herself to walk non stop around the Isle of Wight on the 30th April to raise awareness and funds for this hardworking charity. 106km in approx. 30hours with hopefully no blisters! You can see her progress on our Facebook page and track her fundraising here.
