Meeting the needs of people affected by homelessness in Leicester and Leicestershire
Over the last twelve months, Action Homeless has continued to strive to meet the needs of its local community, offering housing and support to people and families affected by homelessness in Leicester and Leicestershire.
We continue to operate in a challenging environment and sadly recognise an ever growing need for our services. There remains an acute shortage of affordable housing locally, with house prices and rents being some of the fastest rising in the country. The Government’s continued welfare reform agenda and low wages means that more people than ever are finding it difficult to find, or keep a home and are approaching Action Homeless for help.
There has also been a substantial rise on the number sleeping on the street of Leicestershire and Action Homeless continues to prioritise its activity to meet these needs of these individuals. We are proud to be involved in Leicester’s Ending Street Homelessness Campaign and will continue to work with partners towards our joint goal of eradicating street homelessness.
2018 marks the launch of our new organisational strategy and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contributed to the development of this important document which will guide our development and growth to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of the people that need our support.
