The Change Liverpool: End Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Fund will use your donations to help charitable support networks focused on providing the most effective and sustainable assistance to rough sleepers in the Liverpool City Region.
RCN 1068887


In 2019, the North West of England recorded the highest regional increase in levels of rough sleeping since 2010; a staggering 249% rise (Homeless Link, Feb 2020). In 2020, The Museum of Homelessness recorded 976 deaths across the UK; a 37% increase in fatalities reported in 2019.

The Change Liverpool: End Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Fund is supporting the crucial work of public and charitable agencies in ending homelessness across the Liverpool City Region.

Maximise the impact of your donations.

Support centres and charities can help make your money go further. They work tirelessly to calculate how best to use donations effectively to help as many rough sleepers as they possibly can.

£1 given to a rough sleeper on the street might buy them a snack, whereas £1 given to a support network can provide two freshly cooked breakfasts, making your pound go further.

Here are some examples of what your donations could achieve:


Could pay for lunch when attending training or support activities


Could pay for a 1-day travel pass for travelling to interviews, appointments or training


Could pay for a basic phone and credit to help with engagement and support


Could pay for heating and warm showers for a week


Could pay for skills support employment and life skills support


Could pay for job kit interviews preparation, clothing and travel to get started in work


Could pay for a housing starter pack goods to get someone up and running in their house

If you want your donations to go further and help more rough sleepers, then please donate. Together, we can ensure that more than one person benefits from your donations.
