Harbour Housing is a frontline charity providing accommodation and support to homeless and vulnerable people across Cornwall.
Our aim is to be there for everybody who needs us, regardless of their circumstance and always without judgement.
We support over 80 people across eight properties throughout mid-Cornwall and over 100 outreach clients, all with varying levels of complex support needs which prevent them from being housed elsewhere.
We help people to regain their independence through offering tailored support covering mental and physical health, addiction, financial advice and work-based training.
The COVID crisis is stretching our resources and affecting our vulnerable clients.
Many of our beneficiaries have very limited support systems outside of our organisation and already struggle with poor mental health, so are among some of the most adversely affected by the pandemic.
We have had to drastically reduce the number of staff we have in the building at one time and implement emergency remote working to support our clients.
Our staff are currently stretched very thin and are having to adapt fast to this challenging situation, making personal sacrifices to ensure that clients have everything they need.
Your support will allow the individuals in our service to receive the support they need to make it through the crisis.
- We urgently need more Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to help protect our frontline support staff working onsite
- We want to provide hygiene care packages for our residents as well as food parcels for those who cannot get it for themselves.
- Bigger pots and pans to allow us to cook for such large numbers of people.
- Funding to cover the rent on rooms that we are having to use as quarantine facilities for our residents
You can help us to continue supporting vulnerable people recovering from homelessness during this extremely difficult time. Thank you!
