We’re supporting Framework Housing Association’s Winter appeal
We're proud to raise money for Framework Housing Association
Winter feels like it is well and truly upon us and it’s time for the thick jumpers and maybe even cranking up the heating at home.
We’re expecting a cold winter once again this year with sub-zero temperatures and snow forecast over the coming weeks and into the new year. An inconvenience to most of us but a perennial hazard for those who find themselves homeless at this time of year. Unfortunately 2020 is not like previous years in that there’s a double threat to life for those who are currently homeless, this year the Coronavirus pandemic has compounded an already serious issue.
The pandemic, at least in part, has been responsible for a huge increase in the number of homeless in the UK, leading to increased pressure on those organisation’s who support this group.
It’s why we’re trying to raise some additional funds for Framework Charity’s Homeless to Home Winter appeal.
Homeless to Home Appeal
The appeal is designed to support people on their personal journey from ‘homeless to home’ – changing and saving lives. It’s a fantastic cause and the issue of homelessness is particularly challenging at this time of year. Framework does this by:
Preventing homelessness. Prevention is the most effective way to help someone avoid homelessness and ultimately rough sleeping.
Supporting rough sleepers. Their approach is to gain the trust of people sleeping on the street and work with them to address the problems that led them to become homeless in the first place.
Resettling people into suitable accommodation. Frameworks staff work closely with people who are homeless or may have been sleeping rough, providing intensive wrap-around support to secure their tenancies.
To kick off this activity we’re running a raffle where for every £5 donation we’ll give the donor one chance to win up t0 £5,000 worth of Architectural fees with Acres Architects. Details of the raffle can be found on www.justgiving.com/fundraising/acresarchitects
