How do you self-isolate with no home?

"The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak presents specific risks to homeless clients accessing our services. We are working with a group of people in the vulnerable category and whose risk factor is not being addressed. The new Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government guidelines are far too generic."

Claire Dowan, CEO, Homeless Oxfordshire

Homeless Oxfordshire are taking all reasonable and responsible steps as a non-medical organisation to protect our clients, staff and volunteers at this time of crisis.

You can help us:

> Sign our petition to get the specific advice and support from the government - chng.it/RJnjNmDHhm

> Please continue to donate so we can support our clients in every way possible during scary times - www.homelessoxfordshire.uk/donate

Thank you!
