Money raised will support our year-round work across Great Britain, helping provide housing, employment, education and wellbeing services; and ensuring more people move out of homelessness. 

If you want to make suggested donation amounts to your audience or set your target, below are some examples of how money raised through streaming will help people experiencing homelessness:

🤝 £10 could provide a warm welcome to a Crisis service and help someone take their first steps out of homelessness.

👥 £25 could support someone to access volunteering opportunities, helping them to give back to society and gain valuable work experience.  

🍽 £50 could provide someone with the basic essentials they need to settle into a home, such as a kettle, pans and microwave. 

💙 £100 could help someone improve their mental and physical wellbeing, building resilience through group sessions and one-to-one psychological therapy. 

🏠 £250 could provide specialist advice and one-to-one support to help someone find a place to call home and leave homelessness behind for good.
