Christmas at Action Homeless – opening hours
Our staff team, with the help of some willing volunteers, will continue working over the festive period providing support to our residents. With the support of our partners, we’ve also been able to open up some additional winter beds, offering people at risk of rough sleeping, with a safe and warm place to stay.
We are very thankful to all of our supporters who have made donations in the lead up to Christmas. We are truly humbled by the number of individuals and companies that have been in touch to ask how they can help, to volunteer their time, to arrange collections of food and gifts or to make a financial donation.
With your help, we’ve been able to ensure that our staff are able to give out gifts on Christmas morning, helping to make the day a little brighter. We’ve also been able to get food parcels out to people in need and will be serving up Christmas dinners at a number of our housing projects.
