Simon on The Streets – Still Working With The Homeless

This local Charity for the homeless, albeit having to take social distancing precautions, set themselves the primary goal of finding temporary accommodation for all rough sleepers, bearing in mind that some do prefer to stay on the streets for a variety of reasons.

The team is delivering food parcels and hand sanitiser to those in temporary housing, and to work with other local services (such as Forward Leeds and Bevan Healthcare CIC) to assist those with drug or alcohol dependency.  

In terms of emotional support and mental health, there is regular contact to listen to concerns and to reinforce that there is someone to turn to when it all becomes too much.
If you can spare it at this time, would you please consider donating the price of your daily coffee, fule, bus fare,train fare or even weekly bus pass, to ensure continuity of help. Simon on The Streets has had to cancel fundraising events and has no other source of income than sponsorships and donations.
The Leeds Living Team sends every good wish to Simon on The Streets, their volunteers and the people they are helping, for safe passage through this latest of challenges.
