Project Rebuild – Rebuilding the project to rebuild lives
We really need your help, so have launched a fundraising campaign to raise £50,000 in order to expand our services and better support the homeless in our community. Project Rebuild will enable the facility to reopen in May, having been closed since March 2020, due to being unable to support social distancing during the pandemic.
Whilst we don’t know what the long-term effects of the pandemic will be in terms of housing and homelessness, we are already seeing an impact in the increasing amounts of referrals we are having to turn away every day. We can’t wait to open our doors again and get back to doing what we do best – helping people off the streets and into suitable, appropriate accommodation. With your help, we are planning to make some really exciting changes at the facility, including expanding our opening hours to 24/7 and introducing a new health and wellbeing room.
Why we need your support
We have secured a significant amount of grant funding towards the refurbishment project, including a £112,000 National Lottery Community Grant and £15,000 from Catalyst, but we are now appealing to you for help to raise additional funding so that we can cross the finish line in May and reopen our doors.
