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 by pledging your support to the Street Zero Emergency Fund. Donations to the Emergency Fund are channelled to local nominated services and charities who work directly with people who are rough sleeping. Showing kindness, these frontline teams purchase basic items on behalf of those most in need which assists them in the transition to independent living. Find out how you can be one of the first 100 businesses to sign-up and pledge your support.
We invite charities and organisations seeking to make a difference in our city to collaborate with the Street Zero partnership. Discover the opportunities available to help people in Newcastle with complex and entrenched needs by contacting the team here.
