We are delighted to be joining the Make Change Count Campaign
We are working alongside seven local charities to provide a network of support for vulnerable and homeless people in Brighton & Hove: St Mungo’s, BHT, Sussex Nightstop, Equinox, Antifreeze, YMCA Downslink Group and YMCA Brighton.
Homeless charities look after vulnerable people in our city 24 hours a day all year round, providing a wide range of essential services and support.
Frances Duncan, our CEO says:
“This campaign highlights the collaborative work of eight great charities in our city, all of which are working with homeless people to help them rebuild their lives”.
How you can help
We understand that people can feel powerless when they see someone sleeping on the street. By donating to the campaign, you are supporting The Clock Tower Sanctuary and others to provide ongoing, constructive support that enables homeless people to make positive changes and to move on from homelessness.
Donate to the Campaign
If you would like to donate, your small change will make a big difference to local homeless charities.
Donations can be made at http://just.ly/makechangecount2018 or by texting UMCC18 £3, £5 or £10 to 70070.
If you concerned about an individual
Alongside donating to the campaign, we also encourage the public to contact the Streetlink service if they see anyone they are concerned about on the streets. Streetlink provides outreach workers with the information they need to support people on our streets into accessing services to change their lives.”
If you are concerned about someone sleeping rough in our city, you can use the Streetlink website to send an alert. The details you provide are sent to the local outreach service to help them find the individual and connect them to support. Go to www.streetlink.org.uk or call 0300 500 0914.
