We are not prepared to see vulnerable people homeless on the streets and we believe that everyone has a right to a stable, secure and decent home. By providing this basic human requirement, people are free to build the skills necessary to stand on their own and join us in creating a vibrant community that everyone benefits from.
We work in Devon with socially excluded and complex needs individuals. Our work includes helping those with a history of homelessness, who are vulnerably housed, or have lost their accommodation due to financial distress. We’ve been doing this for over 10 years now. As demands have increased, local authority funding and resources to deal with this situation has decreased. On top of this, many local landlords will not take tenants on benefits due to fears over universal credit and housing benefit changes which has led to an increase in homelessness.
Our strategy is to lease or raise money to buy houses so that we can house and support vulnerable people. Whilst we have managed to secure a property we need funds to furnish and equip this 4 bedroom house to make it into a home with basic furnishings such as beds, sofas and carpets, and a few home comforts including a TV. The residents will also be strengthened by a support worker who will help them with life skills and managing a tenancy.
We are looking for supporters who believe the same and who will help us to raise the money we need to furnish and equip this house to a good standard. Will you help?
