As the country comes out of lockdown this July we are faced with one of the biggest challenges in our 40-year history: how to prevent hundreds of homeless people that have been helped off the streets during the pandemic from returning to the streets once the crisis subsides
Over the past few weeks, as well as finding secure and sustainable housing for our clients, we have been transforming their houses into homes by providing furniture, cooking appliances and electronic devices so that they are able to eat, sleep and live comfortably, improving the likelihood of them sustaining their tenancies.
If we are successful, this would result in a huge reduction in the number of people sleeping rough on the streets of Westminster.
Our Urgent House Our Homeless Appeal aims to:
- Move all homeless clients currently residing in emergency accommodation into sustainable accommodation in the private rented sector, so that they are not forced to return to the streets when the coronavirus crisis subsides.
- Provide clients with ‘Move-on Packs’ containing household essentials such as a bed, kettle and microwave as well as a mobile or laptop for staying connected to The Passage so they can get further support to secure their future.
