Falcon Support Services want to provide support and emergency accommodation to those that are homeless in Leicestershire this Christmas.

This Christmas will not be the same for everybody; if we do not act now, many people will wake up on the streets of Leicestershire homeless on Christmas day. No presents under the tree, no Christmas dinner and no family games around the table. 

Falcon Support Services want to provide emergency beds to those that are homele1636633909_2.pngss in Leicestershire over the festive period from 6th Dec - 3rd Jan. We also want to open our doors to the most vulnerable and isolated to provide a community Christmas Lunch. We will provide a warm bed, a hot meal, and a memorable Christmas.

Challenge

Homelessness is on the increase nationally and is bound to worsen after the Coronavirus pandemic. Homelessness can happen to anyone at any time in their life. Christmas should be a joyful time celebrated with family, friends and exchanging gifts. Imagine if you didn't have that. Suppose you were waking up cold, homeless and alone on the streets. The festive period is often the hardest time, and we should all be making that difference.

Solution

£30 will provide a bed in our centre for one night and support to find longer term housing to an individual in Leicestershire this Christmas period, taking them off the streets and into safe accommodation.

£50 will fe1636633938_1.pnged residents at one of our smaller projects on Christmas day who would otherwise not be able to afford a nice Christmas dinner.

£100 will take individuals off the streets for a week over the Christmas period and provide them with food, accommodation and support. This gives the individual the best chance of moving from crisis into real independence in the new year.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide supported accommodation to individuals from across Leicestershire, allowing them to access advice, increase health and well-being and give a sense of community over the festive period. In addition, we will provide support to assist people 1636633981_3.pngto access further accommodation once having left the centre.
