We at NEoffers.co.uk have supported North East homeless over the last two Christmases ensuring that those in our community who have nothing get a warm Christmas meal. Homelessness however is not just around over Christmas, instead around all year around.
Homelessness is reported to have increased by around 60% since the beginning of the pandemic. With most of us in the North East having been affected or knowing someone who has been affected with job losses with many industries devastated due to the pandemic it really does show that homelessness can happen to any of us.
Emma from the charity states that there has been a ignificant rise in their services and they have been 'unable to get out to fundraise’ throughout lockdown and for months of 2020' which has placed a strain on them.
She goes on to state ‘Due to Covid-19 we are seeing a significant increase in numbers and especially people who are new to the benefits system. People who have lost their jobs because of the impact of Covid-19 are very much in poverty and at risk of Homelessness. The face of homelessness is changing once again and we desperately need support to allow us to react to these changes and give practical, reactive and common sense support.’
North East Homeless work hard all year around providing survival equipment, homeless support, hot food and a chance to meet and talk with the outreach support across the region. This year more than ever they need help and support to enable their work to continue and help the vulnerable in our community and therefore we have introduced an option as well as a one off donation to make a small monthly donation to help all year round.
Your fiver donations will provide someone in real need the below…
Many people choose to donate to this great cause rather than by Christmas cards which are in the bin on boxing day but either way for the same price as a high street coffee you are able to make someone’s Christmas and beyond. However this small monthly donation can help all year round.
As well as donations we are also looking for your help to grow our campaign and help as many people are possible in our local North East community.
Once you have donated Click here to share our campaign on social media to help both spread the message but encourage others to donate. Even if you are not in a position to donate yourself by sharing it will help this local cause have the biggest impact.
