The Street Zero Fund pays for things for people who sleep rough to overcome some of the struggles they face and move them away from a life on the streets. Here are some practical acts of kindness you might consider:
- Accommodation Support
- Empty room provision
- Clothing and hygiene products
- Training and travel costs
- Family visits
- Household goods
- Energy support
- Clothing and footwear
- Bed sponsorship per night
In the coming months we hope to share more about the causes of rough sleeping. Discover how you can help pay for goods and services, maybe volunteering your time (www.cvsnewcastle.org.uk) at local homelessness charities, or take part in fundraising activities. We are seeking 10,000 pledges in the first 100 days. Sign up and join JustGiving and pledge today.
Play a significant role in ending rough sleeping in Newcastle, including contributing as part of your corporate social responsibility. Perhaps consider an employee payroll giving scheme helping to support the emergency fund. Be one of the first 50 businesses like Fenwick to pledge your support in the first 100 days.
