2023 Spring Homeless Campaign
Hand on Heart together with our partners Beta Charitable Trust are planning another mammoth collaborative Spring Campaign by assembling and distributing 2,000 essential packs. HoH will be working alongside 28 organisations in response to the Government’s worrying report which showed a rise in rough sleeping figures for the first time since 2017. This follows Hand on Heart’s successful winter campaign where the charity aided the homeless community, asylum seekers and refugees, by distributing a record 3,465 winter warmer packs during 2022/23.
The cost of living crisis, soaring inflation and excessive heating bills have all contributed to the 26% rise in rough sleeping, with 125,000 children now finding themselves in temporary accommodation. This means that the current level of rough sleeping in the UK is at its highest in 18 years. In response, Hand on Heart’s spring campaign will see the distribution of 2,000 high-quality drawstring bags containing spring essentials and 600 shower jackets will be handed out as the charity serve across 30 locations including London, Birmingham, Brighton, Leicester, Manchester and Northampton.
Each pack will include the following items: Joggers, T-Shirts, Socks, Underwear, Deodorants, Wet Wipes, Shower gel, First Aid plasters, an Oral Hygiene kit and Eid Card packed in a quality Drawstring bag.
To coincide with Easter and the month of Ramadhan, HoH will mark the occasions by providing Easter Eggs, Eid treats and an Eid card in each pack with a message of goodwill and hope.
