I want to launch Never Forsaken, a charity that helps the homeless and rough sleepers, rebuild their life in a practical, holistic way!

by Deanne - Never Forsaken in United Kingdom

Hello, I am Deanne. 

A young Christian activist, who wants to help society in various forms, i.e. through my profession as a Social Worker (Student) but also through charities such as Never Forsaken. 

My vision for Never Forsaken is in the name, I want homeless people and rough sleepers to feel as though they have not been forgotten about or forsaken. I want Never Forsaken to be a hub (albeit digital hub) where they can access practical help to rebuild their life, i.e. Financial - support with finding and applying to jobs, Mental - access to counsellors for unresolved trauma they may be facing, support with self care (free haircuts/hair treatments, spa days, gym passes),  Spiritual - being aware of their spiritual/religious needs, Educational - access to courses. ETC.

This is a vision that could help transform the lives of many.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

By Donating Money - To help us launch as a charity, develop an app software and website, and buy practical products to give to homeless people. 

By Donating Clothes - To help us give free clothes.

By Offering/Volunteering Free Services - To help us help homeless people and rough sleepers in a practical, holistic way.


By Sharing This CrowdFunder - To help spread the word, which will help us receive more donations and more services offered.

WHY £10,000?


The aim is to set this up as a Charity which costs £5000, and failing that then to set it up as a company.


As stated earlier, Never Forsaken desires to be a digital space that non homeless people can use to help homeless people that they come across, thus money is also needed to develop this website and/or app.


To buy practical items such as food, clothes and sanitary products!

Alongside practical support I am also interested in breaking the stigma around homelessness, and it will be vital to this project! I have done a former project on stigma, whilst studying for my undergrad.

I am also keen on legislation in government being suitable and helping the people it was made for. 

To learn more about the legalisation, you can read the Homelessness Reduction Act (2017) http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2017/13/contents
