Homelessness affects lots of different people. Some people become homeless because they have experienced mental health problems, drug or alcohol misuse, domestic violence or abuse, unemployment or family breakdown. Yet, there are still a lot of misconceptions about homelessness that are based on faulty thinking or understanding.

First of all, not all homeless people live on the streets.
An homeless person is someone who has no permanent home or address.
They may sleep on the street, in disused buildings, or in night shelters and other temporary accommodation, but they might also be ‘sofa surfing’ on friends' floors.

Help us offer them a better future! ☀️

By donating, you are supporting our clients to move out of homelessness and back to an independent life.

Over the next few days, the Met Office is forecasting high day and night time temperatures 🔥🔥🔥

🥵 High temperature can affect anyone, but people experiencing homelessness are at particular risk of dehydration, heat exhaustion, heatstroke and sunburn.

🏠 Homeless Oxfordshire will be opening the doors of O’Hanlon House, from today to Friday 12th, to anyone sleeping rough who needs to get out of the extreme temperatures.
The Outreach team will provide water, cups and sunscreen to people on the streets.

😖 If you are concerned about someone who is experiencing rough sleeping, contact the St Mungo’s OxSPOT team.
To give details about someone experiencing rough sleeping – including their location – call OxSPOT during office hours on 07590 862049 / 01865 416044 or email Outreach.Oxford@mungos.org

You can also report a concern through the StreetLink website or app, or by calling 0300 500 0914 during its daily rounds.

Thank you and stay safe! 🌞
