Dear Rollright WI,
I am writing to you on the behalf of Homeless Oxfordshire.
Each night we accommodate 200 people. But we are more than bricks and mortar. Through 11 innovative housing projects, we provide a range of support to help people rebuild their lives. We have been supporting people across the county for over 30 years; providing meals, accommodation, training and education, welfare support and helping individuals to develop basic skills to run their own homes.
This year has been an extremely challenging one for our services. Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, Homeless Oxfordshire has had to adapt and redesign how we provide our essential lifesaving frontline service to support some of the most vulnerable people in our communities during this national crisis. The majority of people using our services have suffered severe trauma in their lives which impacts on mental health and substance misuse as they are in a constant state of chaos or crisis. During the COVID-19 crisis these challenges have been magnified and people need extra support to be able to cope.
Communities have been coming together in extraordinary ways to help and support each other. We wanted to share with you some of the exciting opportunities we have coming up that your club may want to get involved with, as well as ask for your kind consideration to become your charity of choice for 2020/21.
To find out more about our services and all of the opportunities available please visit our website at www.homelessoxfordshire.uk. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give me a call. Whether you chose us your charity of the year, purchase some raffle tickets or share us in your newsletter any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your consideration. With very best wishes, Mackenzie Aspell
