Marie, one of our clients, became homeless after her partner at the time damaged her property and she lost her tenancy. This resulted in her turning to rough sleeping.

Marie came to us after 20 years of living on the street. Her story shows that it is never too late to seek support. She describes her key worker, Fran, as one of the most helpful aspects of the support she received. Fran understands the things that hold Marie back and she is excellent at organising things such as Marie’s support benefits.

Using Fran’s help, Marie is now planning on moving into her own place at a pace that suits her best.

“I’m going into my own place. That’s that...everything’s going at the speed it should be going. Fran’s doing her best for me and I feel good.” Marie, client

There are many people like Marie that need our help. If you would like to donate today, you can do so by using this link: loom.ly/Tui7x68

We are already halfway through January and our fight to end homelessness has never been more focused. The UK is experiencing a homelessness crisis. In Oxford alone, the number of rough sleepers has increased by 400% since 2012.

Not only that, but the average house price in Oxford is £513,754. This is around 17 times higher than the average yearly household income in the UK.

These are just two examples of why we need your support. Your support year on year is what allows us to continue our work to make homelessness a thing of the past.

Did you know there has been a huge rise in the number of women sleeping rough in the past year?

In 2021, we had a 40% increase in women accessing our services with the pandemic being a contributing factor to the rise. For example, some women have found themselves in lockdown with an abusive partner, resulting in them needing to make a life and death decision.

Sleeping rough is a life-threatening situation for anybody, but for women there can be an increased risk. This risk may come from not being able to protect themselves in situations potentially with men. There’s also a real risk of exploitation when rough sleeping.

The challenges that homeless women face are endless.

It’s easy for us to take something as basic as accessing healthcare for granted.

But accessing healthcare isn’t simple for homeless people. Due to having no fixed address, registering at health practices is almost impossible.

We want to make a change to this and to bridge that gap.

Thanks to your generosity, we’re able to support the work of the Luther Street Medical Centre through leasing a building to the clinical commissioning group.

This ensures quality healthcare to the homeless, whether they are registered with a Doctor or not.
