Local Charity Beneficiaries
Thames Reach mission is to ensure that the users of its services find and sustain a decent home, develop supportive relationships and lead fulfilling lives. Our vision is of a society where nobody need sleep rough on the streets.
Thames Reach supports homeless and formerly homeless people and others who, although they have not been homeless in the past, require assistance and interventions to avoid rough sleeping and sustain themselves in accommodation and to improve the quality of their life.
No person should have to sleep rough or stay in an unsafe place.
Depaul UK works in some of the UK’s most disadvantaged communities, working to prevent homelessness and provide support to vulnerable young people at every step of their journey. From emergency accommodation to longer-term housing and outreach services in the community, we provide immediate solutions for 16 to 25 year olds at risk of, or experiencing, homelessness. Our mission is to end homelessness and change the lives of people affected by it. We believe in a society in which everyone has a place to call home and a stake in their community.
We help thousands of people a year recover from the trauma of homelessness.
Located in the heart of central London, we work around the clock to provide immediate relief from homelessness and long-term support leading to housing, work and independence. Across the UK, we support homeless and vulnerably housed people through small-sum, rapid response grants to access accommodation or prevent loss of accommodation.
We are the national membership charity for organisations working directly with people who become homeless in England.
We work to make services better and campaign for policy change that will help end homelessness. We want a country free from homelessness, where everyone has a place to call home and the support they need to keep it.
The Big Issue Foundation
We support Big Issue vendors to achieve financial stability through their magazine sales whilst helping them to overcome longstanding social disadvantages previously holding them back. All our beneficiaries are Big Issue vendors that buy magazines for £1.25 with their own money from official distribution points and sell them for £2.50 on a designated pitch.
Our vision is to create opportunities that will end poverty and exclusion for Big Issue vendors and our mission is to connect Big Issue vendors to the vital support and specialist services that enable them to rebuild their lives and determine their own pathways to a better future. We currently support over 1,240 Big Issue vendors every year across London, the South Coast, Oxfordshire, the Midlands and the South West.
