Permanent accommodation and potential training and job opportunities for Homeless/Rough sleepers.

by Andrew Dale in Manchester, England, United Kingdom

Hi my name is Andrew Dale; I am 43 from Middleton, where I have lived all my life. I thought I would make this funding page to highlight a little bit about me from the past 12 months of my life, and what I would like to achieve. In September 2017 my father got diagnosed with Leukaemia, for which I was his main carer, treatment was unsuccessful and he passed away in July 2018. During time as his carer I stood for 2018 local elections, only losing out by a small margin. Unfortunately it is something I will not be doing this year; hopefully this project will replace that as my challenge. After a small grieving period, I went working away as a coach tour driver; unfortunately this didn’t work out due to my hours being cut. I then had sufficient work to see me through until Christmas. Enter January 2019, after a turbulent period. I felt rock bottom, having a lot of time and energy on my hands and nothing to do. After recently hearing the following: •Manchester soup kitchen is due to close. •Chatting to a former rough sleeper and a young person whom had a 5 year addiction to Spice, and both have managed with help and support to turn their lives around. •The local community rallies round to assist a local rough sleeper in a bus shelter. The above has given me an inspirational idea. I would like to raise funds through crowdfunding and any other fundraising initiatives. I guarantee that any proceeds raised will go to providing: •Permanent accommodation and potential training and job opportunities for Homeless/Rough sleepers. •Potential training and job opportunities for local youths. •Youth clubs. •To stand in elections 2020 (Independent should I decide to). Without complicating things by including too many figures. •Greater Manchester has a population of approximately 2.5million. •Approximately 105,000 business’s in Greater Manchester If as many of these were to donate just £1 then there is no reason this cannot become a reality, and if I achieve enough funds I will guarantee that I will endeavour to continue fundraising for as long as required. Please give me that little bit of help, to help you without any allegiance to any political party.

Let's make 'Permanent accommodation for homeless/rough sleeper' happen
